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

VMware vCenter Server (6.5 prior to 6.5 U1) contains a vulnerability that may allow for stored cross-site scripting (XSS). An attacker with VC user privileges can inject malicious java-scripts which will get executed when other VC users access the page.
