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

LaunchServices in Apple OS X before 10.10.2 does not properly handle file-type metadata, which allows attackers to bypass the Gatekeeper protection mechanism via a crafted JAR archive.
