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

epan/dissectors/packet-mongo.c in the MongoDB dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and CPU consumption) via a small value for a BSON document length.
