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 IOHIDSecurePromptClient function in Apple OS X does not properly validate pointer values, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted web site.
