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

drivers/media/media-device.c in the Linux kernel before 3.11, as used in Android before 2016-08-05 on Nexus 5 and 7 (2013) devices, does not properly initialize certain data structures, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted application, aka Android internal bug 28750150 and Qualcomm internal bug CR570757, a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-1739.
