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 ip6_route_add function in net/ipv6/route.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not properly count the addition of routes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a flood of ICMPv6 Router Advertisement packets.
