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

VMware vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) 5.5 before Update 2, 5.1 before Update 3, and 5.0 before Update 3c does not properly validate certificates when connecting to a CIM Server on an ESXi host, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof CIM servers via a crafted certificate.
