New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Buffer overflow in ssinc.dll in IIS 5.0 and 4.0 allows local users to gain system privileges via a Server-Side Includes (SSI) directive for a long filename, which triggers the overflow when the directory name is added, aka the "SSI privilege elevation" vulnerability.
