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

Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5.0_6 and earlier, JDK 1.5.0_6 and earlier, and SDK 1.5.0_6 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (disk consumption) by using the Font.createFont function to create temporary files of arbitrary size in the %temp% directory.
