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 regulator_ena_gpio_free function in drivers/regulator/core.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted application.
