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

The imap_header function in the IMAP functionality for PHP before 4.3.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via an e-mail message with a large number of "To" addresses, which triggers an error in the rfc822_write_address function.
