New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Microsoft Silverlight 5 before 5.1.20513.0 does not properly initialize arrays, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a crafted Silverlight application, aka "Null Pointer Vulnerability."
