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 (1) setreuid and (2) setregid system-call implementations in the kernel in Apple iOS before 8.3, Apple OS X before 10.10.3, and Apple TV before 7.2 do not properly perform privilege drops, which makes it easier for attackers to execute code with unintended user or group privileges via a crafted app.
