Security Metrics
Yeah, pretty bad, that you just can't fully rely on some security systems and companies, and metrics, but need to understand more by yourself and waste some time on that.

CVE-2018-14337
PUBLISHED: 2018-07-17
The CHECK macro in mrbgems/mruby-sprintf/src/sprintf.c in mruby 1.4.1 contains a signed integer overflow, possibly leading to out-of-bounds memory access because the mrb_str_resize function in string.c does not check for a negative length.
CVE-2018-14329
PUBLISHED: 2018-07-17
In HTSlib 1.8, a race condition in cram/cram_io.c might allow local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.
CVE-2018-14331
PUBLISHED: 2018-07-17
An issue was discovered in XiaoCms X1 v20140305. There is a CSRF vulnerability to change the administrator account password via admin/index.php?c=index&a=my.
CVE-2018-14333
PUBLISHED: 2018-07-17
TeamViewer through 13.1.1548 stores a password in Unicode format within TeamViewer.exe process memory between "[00 88] and "[00 00 00]" delimiters, which might make it easier for attackers to obtain sensitive information by leveraging an unattended workstation on which TeamViewer has ...
CVE-2018-14334
PUBLISHED: 2018-07-17
manager/editor/upload.php in joyplus-cms 1.6.0 allows arbitrary file upload because detection of a prohibited file extension simply sets the $errm value, and does not otherwise alter the flow of control. Consequently, one can upload and execute a .php file, a similar issue to CVE-2018-8766.
