CVE-2016-1728

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 Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) implementation in Apple iOS before 9.2.1 and Safari before 9.0.3 mishandles the "a:visited button" selector during height processing, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain sensitive browser-history information via a crafted web site.
