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 (1) it87 and (2) via686a drivers in I2C for Linux 2.6.x before 2.6.11.8, and 2.6.12 before 2.6.12-rc2, create the sysfs "alarms" file with write permissions, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) by attempting to write to the file, which does not have an associated store function.
