CVE-2011-1476

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

Integer underflow in the Open Sound System (OSS) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 on unspecified non-x86 platforms allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) by leveraging write access to /dev/sequencer.
