CVE-2014-4461

HIGH
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The kernel in Apple iOS before 8.1.1 and Apple TV before 7.0.2 does not properly validate IOSharedDataQueue object metadata, which allows attackers to execute arbitrary code in a privileged context via a crafted application.
