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

The task_show_regs function in arch/s390/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38-rc4-next-20110216 on the s390 platform allows local users to obtain the values of the registers of an arbitrary process by reading a status file under /proc/.
