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

This can be done by sending a specially crafted message to 127.0.0.1:7153. Observed in FactoryTalk Linx 6.11. All versions of FactoryTalk Linx are affected.
