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

Race condition in fileserver in OpenAFS 1.3.50 through 1.4.5 and 1.5.0 through 1.5.27 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) by simultaneously acquiring and giving back file callbacks, which causes the handler for the GiveUpAllCallBacks RPC to perform linked-list operations without the host_glock lock.
