CVE-2011-4609

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 svc_run function in the RPC implementation in glibc before 2.15 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a large number of RPC connections.
