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

Multiple buffer overflows in the (1) heap_add_entry and (2) relocate_dir functions in archive_read_support_format_iso9660.c in libarchive through 2.8.5 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted ISO9660 image.
