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

The XEN_DOMCTL_getmemlist hypercall in Xen 3.4.x through 4.3.x (possibly 4.3.1) does not always obtain the page_alloc_lock and mm_rwlock in the same order, which allows local guest administrators to cause a denial of service (host deadlock).
