New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


Versions of CouchDB earlier than 1.0.4, 1.1.x earlier than 1.1.2 or 1.2.x earlier than 1.2.1. It is therefore potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists in the included MochiWeb HTTP library that can allow access to arbitrary files via directory traversal attacks. Note that reportedly, this issue only affects installs on Windows hosts. (CVE-2012-5641)

- An error related to JSONP callbacks can allow an unspecified cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-5649)

- An input validation error exists related to unspecified query parameters and the Futon UI that can allow DOM-based cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-5650)
