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 WPS UPnP function in hostapd, when using WPS AP, and wpa_supplicant, when using WPS external registrar (ER), 0.7.0 through 2.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a negative chunk length, which triggers an out-of-bounds read or heap-based buffer overflow.
