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

Microsoft Windows Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2 and Server 2008 Gold and SP2 do not properly validate fields in SMBv2 packets, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and system hang) via a crafted packet to the Server service, aka "SMBv2 Infinite Loop Vulnerability."
