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

CoreGraphics in Apple Safari before 4.0 on Windows does not properly use arithmetic during automatic hinting of TrueType fonts, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via crafted font data.
