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 "Clear History and Website Data" feature in Apple Safari before 9.1.1, as used in iOS before 9.3.2 and other products, mishandles the deletion of browsing history, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging read access to a Safari directory.
