CVE-2011-1951

MEDIUM
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

lib/logmatcher.c in Balabit syslog-ng before 3.2.4, when the global flag is set and when using PCRE 8.12 and possibly other versions, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a message that does not match a regular expression.
