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

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in ecrire/exec/valider_xml.php in SPIP 3.1.2 and earlier allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that execute the XML validator on a local file via a crafted valider_xml request. NOTE: this issue can be combined with CVE-2016-7998 to execute arbitrary PHP code.
