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

A reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in TCExam <= 14.8.3. The paths provided in the f, d, and dir parameters in tce_filemanager.php were not properly validated and could cause reflected XSS via the unsanitized output of the path supplied. An attacker could craft a malicious link which, if triggered by an administrator, could result in the attacker hijacking the victim's session or performing actions on their behalf.
