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

Heap-based buffer overflow in the Exclusive Canonicalization functionality (xsec/canon/XSECC14n20010315.cpp) in Apache Santuario XML Security for C++ (aka xml-security-c) before 1.7.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PrefixList attribute.
