CVE-2014-8080

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 REXML parser in Ruby 1.9.x before 1.9.3-p550, 2.0.x before 2.0.0-p594, and 2.1.x before 2.1.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted XML document, aka an XML Entity Expansion (XEE) attack.
