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

Multiple integer overflows in the chunk_split function in PHP 5 before 5.2.3 and PHP 4 before 4.4.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via the (1) chunks, (2) srclen, and (3) chunklen arguments.
