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

Heap-based buffer overflow in the alpha strip capability in libpng 1.2.7 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) when the png_do_strip_filler function is used to strip alpha channels out of the image.
