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

effects/SkDashPathEffect.cpp in Skia, as used in Google Chrome before 39.0.2171.65, computes a hash key using uninitialized integer values, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service by rendering crafted data.
