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

java/org/apache/coyote/ajp/AbstractAjpProcessor.java in Apache Tomcat 8.x before 8.0.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (thread consumption) by using a "Content-Length: 0" AJP request to trigger a hang in request processing.
