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.


In all versions of FactoryTalk View SE, after bypassing memory corruption mechanisms found in the operating system, a local, authenticated attacker may corrupt the associated memory space allowing for arbitrary code execution. Rockwell Automation recommends applying patch 1126290. Before installing this patch, the patch rollup dated 06 Apr 2020 or later MUST be applied. 1066644 – Patch Roll-up for CPR9 SRx.
