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 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, Server 2003 SP2, and Vista Gold does not perform the expected validation before creating a symbolic link, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (reboot) via a crafted application, aka "Windows Kernel Symbolic Link Value Vulnerability."
