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 quoted-printable decoder in bogofilter 0.17.4 to 0.92.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via mail headers that cause a line feed (LF) to be replaced by a null byte that is written to an incorrect memory address.
