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 kernel in Apple iOS before 8.4.1 and OS X before 10.10.5 does not properly restrict the mach_port_space_info interface, which allows attackers to obtain sensitive memory-layout information via a crafted app.
