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

IIS 5.0 allows local users to cause a denial of service (hang) via by installing content that produces a certain invalid MIME Content-Type header, which corrupts the File Type table.
