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

Apache Santuario XML Security for C++ (aka xml-security-c) before 1.7.1 does not properly validate length values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or bypass the CVE-2009-0217 protection mechanism and spoof a signature via crafted length values to the (1) compareBase64StringToRaw, (2) DSIGAlgorithmHandlerDefault, or (3) DSIGAlgorithmHandlerDefault::verify functions.
