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 JPEG library in media-libs/jpeg before 6b-r7 on Gentoo Linux is built without the -maxmem feature, which could allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion) via a crafted JPEG file that exceeds the intended memory limits.
