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

KDE-Workspace 4.10.5 and earlier does not properly handle the return value of the glibc 2.17 crypt and pw_encrypt functions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via (1) an invalid salt or a (2) DES or (3) MD5 encrypted password, when FIPS-140 is enable, to KDM or an (4) invalid password to KCheckPass.
