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

The Internet Authentication Service (IAS) in Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 and Server 2008 SP2 does not properly validate MS-CHAP v2 Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) authentication requests, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted structures in a malformed request, aka "Internet Authentication Service Memory Corruption Vulnerability."
