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

Under non-standard configurations, IBM WebSphere MQ might send password data in clear text over the network. This data could be intercepted using man in the middle techniques.
