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

QEMU-KVM, as used in the Hypervisor (aka rhev-hypervisor) in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 2.2 and KVM 83, does not properly validate guest QXL driver pointers, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and guest OS crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified vectors.
