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 Network Lock Manager (NLM) protocol implementation in the NFS client functionality in the Linux kernel before 3.0 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) via a LOCK_UN flock system call.
