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

Ubuntu Linux 6.10 for the PowerPC (PPC) allows local users to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) by using the (1) sys_get_robust_list and (2) sys_set_robust_list functions to create processes that cannot be killed.
