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

Windows Error Reporting (WER) in Microsoft Windows 10 Gold, 1511, and 1607, and Windows Server 2016 allows an attacker to gain greater access to sensitive information and system functionality, due to the way that WER handles and executes files, aka "Windows Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability".
