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 cleanup_journal_tail function in the Journaling Block Device (JBD) functionality in the Linux kernel 2.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (assertion error and kernel oops) via an ext3 or ext4 image with an "invalid log first block value."
