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

Sun Java System Directory Proxy Server in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 through 6.3, when a JDBC data source is used, does not properly handle (1) a long value in an ADD or (2) long string attributes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (JDBC backend outage) via crafted LDAP requests.
