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

TP-Link TL-WR840N v5 00000005 devices allow XSS via the network name. The attacker must log into the router by breaking the password and going to the admin login page by THC-HYDRA to get the network name. With an XSS payload, the network name changed automatically and the internet connection was disconnected. All the users become disconnected from the internet.
