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

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.23 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long argument to the (1) nan, (2) nanf, or (3) nanl function.
