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

Buffer overflow in the fuse_do_ioctl function in fs/fuse/file.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.37 allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the ability to operate a CUSE server.
