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

DirectWrite in Microsoft Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, R2, and R2 SP1, and Windows 7 Gold and SP1 does not properly render Unicode characters, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application hang) via a (1) instant message or (2) web site, aka "DirectWrite Application Denial of Service Vulnerability."
