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

MapKit in Apple iOS before 9.3.2, OS X before 10.11.5, and watchOS before 2.2.1 does not use HTTPS for shared links, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by sniffing the network for HTTP traffic.
