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

WebKit in Apple iOS before 10, iTunes before 12.5.1 on Windows, and Safari before 10 does not properly restrict access to the location variable, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a crafted web site.
