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 kernel in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 does not properly handle unspecified exceptions when an error condition occurs, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (reboot) via a crafted application, aka "Windows Kernel Exception Handler Vulnerability."
