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 Microsoft Common Console Document (.msc) in Microsoft Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 SP2 and R2 SP1 allows an attacker to read arbitrary files via an XML external entity (XXE) declaration, due to the way that the Microsoft Common Console Document (.msc) parses XML input containing a reference to an external entity, aka "Windows Information Disclosure Vulnerability".
