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

arch/s390/kernel/head64.S in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 on the s390 platform does not properly handle attempted use of the linkage stack, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by executing a crafted instruction.
