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

X.org libFS 1.0.4 and earlier allows X servers to trigger allocation of insufficient memory and a buffer overflow via vectors related to an unexpected sign extension in the FSOpenServer function.
