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 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 does not properly validate fields in SMB transaction responses, which allows remote SMB servers and man-in-the-middle attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and reboot) via a crafted (1) SMBv1 or (2) SMBv2 response, aka "SMB Client Transaction Vulnerability."
