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 issue was addressed by encrypting communications over the network to devices running iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7. This issue is fixed in iOS 14.0 and iPadOS 14.0, Xcode 12.0. An attacker in a privileged network position may be able to execute arbitrary code on a paired device during a debug session over the network.
