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

Memory leak in Xen 4.2 and unstable allows local HVM guests to cause a denial of service (host memory consumption) by performing nested virtualization in a way that triggers errors that are not properly handled.
