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

Integer overflow in sys_epoll_wait in eventpoll.c for Linux kernel 2.6 to 2.6.11 allows local users to overwrite kernel memory via a large number of events.
