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 NDSD process in Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 before 8.7.3.10 ftf2 and eDirectory 8.8 before 8.8.5 ftf1 does not properly handle certain LDAP search requests, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application hang) via a search request with a NULL BaseDN value.
