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

Heap-based buffer overflow in wiretap/pcapng.c in Wireshark before 1.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted capture file.
