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.


Insufficient protection of the inter-process communication functions in ABB System 800xA products OPC Server for AC 800M, MMS Server for AC 800M and Base Software for SoftControl (all published versions) enables an attacker authenticated on the local system to inject data, affecting the online view of runtime data shown in Control Builder.
