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

ptrace in Linux kernel 2.6.8.1 does not properly verify addresses on the amd64 platform, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel crash).
