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 t42_parse_encoding function in type42/t42parse.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not properly update the current position for immediates-only mode, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a Type42 font.
