CVSS Information

CVSS Base Score v3: 8.0 / 10
CVSS Base Vector:
AV : Attack Vector (Related exploit range) Network (N)
AC : Attack Complexity (Required attack complexity) High (H)
PR : Privileges Required (Level of privileges needed to exploit) High (H)
UI : User Interaction (Required user participation) None (N)
S : Scope (Change in scope due to impact caused to components beyond
the vulnerable component) Changed (C)
C : Impact to Confidentiality High (H)
I : Impact to Integrity High (H)
