ID: N/A
Title: F5 BigIP Unauthenticated rsync Vulnerability
Vendor: F5

ID: CVE-2013-7331
Title: Microsoft XMLDOM ActiveX Control Multiple Information Disclosure

IP addresses by examining error codes, as demonstrated by a res:// URL,
and exploited in the wild in February 2014.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:P)

ID: CVE-2014-3120
