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

Webroot endpoint agents prior to version v9.0.28.48 did not protect the "%PROGRAMDATA%\WrData\PKG" directory against renaming. This could allow attackers to trigger a crash or wait upon Webroot service restart to rewrite and hijack dlls in this directory for privilege escalation.
