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 Security component in Apple OS X before 10.10.2 does not properly process cached information about app certificates, which allows attackers to bypass the Gatekeeper protection mechanism by leveraging access to a revoked Developer ID certificate for signing a crafted app.
