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

arch/ia64/xen/faults.c in Xen 3.4 and 4.0 in Linux kernel 2.6.18, and possibly other kernel versions, when running on IA-64 architectures, allows local users to cause a denial of service and "turn on BE by modifying the user mask of the PSR," as demonstrated via exploitation of CVE-2006-0742.
