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

Linux 2.6.11 on 64-bit x86 (x86_64) platforms does not use a guard page for the 47-bit address page to protect against an AMD K8 bug, which allows local users to cause a denial of service.
