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 SMB client in the kernel in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 allows remote SMB servers and man-in-the-middle attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and system hang) via a (1) SMBv1 or (2) SMBv2 response packet that contains (a) an incorrect length value in a NetBIOS header or (b) an additional length field at the end of this response packet, aka "SMB Client Incomplete Response Vulnerability."
