Severity: Attack Vector - Physical

> A vulnerability exploitable with Physical access requires the attacker to physically touch or manipulate the vulnerable component. Physical interaction may be brief (e.g. evil maid attack) or persistent. An example of such an attack is a cold boot attack which allows an attacker to access to disk encryption keys after gaining physical access to the system, or peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB Direct Memory Access attacks. Quote from the CVSS specification Vulnerabilities with this tag were given a CVSS rating as part of the requirement to be included into the [National Vulnerability Database](https://nvd.nist.gov/). You can learn more about what the individual scores mean in the [CVSS specification document](https://www.first.org/cvss/specification-document).
