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 zend_hash_init function in PHP 5 before 5.2.1 and PHP 4 before 4.4.5, when running on a 64-bit platform, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by unserializing certain integer expressions, which only cause 32-bit arguments to be used after the check for a negative value, as demonstrated by an "a:2147483649:{" argument.
