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

win32k.sys in the kernel in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, and Server 2003 SP2 does not correctly parse font code during construction of a directory-entry table, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Embedded OpenType (EOT) font, aka "Win32k EOT Parsing Vulnerability."
