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 HFS and HFS+ (hfsplus) modules in Linux 2.6 allow attackers to cause a denial of service (oops) by using hfsplus to mount a filesystem that is not hfsplus.
