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

An issue was discovered in certain Apple products. iOS before 11.3 is affected. macOS before 10.13.4 is affected. The issue involves the "WindowServer" component. It allows attackers to bypass the Secure Input Mode protection mechanism, and log keystrokes of arbitrary apps, via a crafted app that scans key states.
