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 shmem_nopage function in shmem.c for the tmpfs driver in Linux kernel 2.6 does not properly verify the address argument, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel crash) via an invalid address.
