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.
The do_tmem_control function in the Transcendent Memory (TMEM) in Xen 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 does not properly check privileges, which allows local guest OS users to access control stack operations via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this issue was originally published as part of CVE-2012-3497, which was too general; CVE-2012-3497 has been SPLIT into this ID and others.
