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

net/ipv4/ip_gre.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34, when ip_gre is configured as a module, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by sending a packet during module loading.
