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

PostgreSQL before 8.3.7, 8.2.13, 8.1.17, 8.0.21, and 7.4.25 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and crash) by triggering a failure in the conversion of a localized error message to a client-specified encoding, as demonstrated using mismatched encoding conversion requests.
