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 xattr file system code, as backported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 on 64-bit systems, does not properly handle certain offsets, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via certain actions on an ext3 file system with extended attributes enabled.
