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 compatibility mode hypercall argument translation in Xen 3.3.x through 4.4.x, when running on a 64-bit hypervisor, allows local 32-bit HVM guests to cause a denial of service (host crash) via vectors involving altering the high halves of registers while in 64-bit mode.
