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

Integer overflow in the WriteProlog function in texttops in CUPS 1.1.17 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 3 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PostScript file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2008-3640.
