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

Off-by-one error in the iov_iter_advance function in mm/filemap.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27-rc2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a certain sequence of file I/O operations with readv and writev, as demonstrated by testcases/kernel/fs/ftest/ftest03 from the Linux Test Project.
