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 dissect_mq_rr function in epan/dissectors/packet-mq.c in the MQ dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 does not properly determine when to enter a certain loop, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
