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

SCTP conntrack (ip_conntrack_proto_sctp.c) in netfilter for Linux kernel 2.6.17 before 2.6.17.3 and 2.6.16 before 2.6.16.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a packet without any chunks, which causes a variable to contain an invalid value that is later used to dereference a pointer.
