Switch to recently released version 1.1 of NVD CVE JSON feed, as in
it is mentioned that

  Due to changes required to support CVSS v3.1 scoring, the JSON
  vulnerability feeds must be modified. This will require the consumers
  of this data to update their internal processes. We will be providing
  the JSON 1.1 schema on the data feeds page and the information below
  to prepare for this transition.
  The JSON 1.1 data feeds will be available on September 9th, 2019. At
  that time the current JSON 1.0 data feeds will no longer available.

This change was tested briefly by issuing 'bitbake core-image-minimal'
with 'cve-check.bbclass' inherited via local.conf, and then comparing
the content between the resulting two
'DEPLOY_DIR_IMAGE/core-image-minimal-qemux86.cve' files, which did not
seem to contain any other change, except total of 167 entries like


were replaced with similar 'CVSS v3 BASE SCORE:' entries which had
scores that were greater than '0.0' (up to '9.8').
