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

LibTIFF in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 3 on x86_64 platforms, as used in tiff2rgba, attempts to process image data even when the required compression functionality is not configured, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted TIFF image, related to "downsampled OJPEG input."
