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

Hyper-V in Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 does not properly initialize guest OS system data structures, which allows guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS or cause a denial of service (buffer overflow) by leveraging guest OS privileges, aka "Hyper-V Buffer Overflow Vulnerability."
