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 Web Services on Devices API (WSDAPI) in Windows Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2 and Server 2008 Gold and SP2 does not properly process the headers of WSD messages, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted (1) message or (2) response, aka "Web Services on Devices API Memory Corruption Vulnerability."
