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 extension APIs in the kernel in Apple iOS before 8.1.3, Apple OS X before 10.10.2, and Apple TV before 7.0.3 do not prevent the presence of addresses within an OSBundleMachOHeaders key in a response, which makes it easier for attackers to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted app.
