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 (1) __futex_atomic_op and (2) futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic functions in Linux kernel 2.6.17-rc4 to 2.6.18-rc2 perform the atomic futex operation in the kernel address space instead of the user address space, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash).
