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 get_page_from_gfn hypercall function in Xen 4.2 allows local PV guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted GFN that triggers a buffer over-read.
