CVE-2015-1108

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 Lock Screen component in Apple iOS before 8.3 does not properly enforce the limit on incorrect passcode-authentication attempts, which makes it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain access by making many passcode guesses.
