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

Multiple integer overflows in dvipsk/dospecial.c in dvips in TeX Live 2009 and earlier, and teTeX, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a special command in a DVI file, related to the (1) predospecial and (2) bbdospecial functions, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0739.
