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 svcauth_gss_accept_sec_context function in lib/rpc/svc_auth_gss.c in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.11.x through 1.11.5, 1.12.x through 1.12.2, and 1.13.x before 1.13.1 transmits uninitialized interposer data to clients, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process heap memory by sniffing the network for data in a handle field.
