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 Sandbox Profiles component in Apple iOS before 10 does not properly restrict access to directory metadata for SMS draft directories, which allows attackers to discover text-message recipients via a crafted app.
