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

Content Injection vulnerability in Tenable Nessus prior to 8.5.0 may allow an authenticated, local attacker to exploit this vulnerability by convincing another targeted Nessus user to view a malicious URL and use Nessus to send fraudulent messages. Successful exploitation could allow the authenticated adversary to inject arbitrary text into the feed status, which will remain saved post session expiration.
