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

TCPDUMP 3.8.1 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via ISAKMP packets containing a Delete payload with a large number of SPI's, which causes an out-of-bounds read, as demonstrated by the Striker ISAKMP Protocol Test Suite.
