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 xenmem_add_to_physmap_one function in arch/arm/mm.c in Xen 4.5.x, 4.4.x, and earlier does not limit the number of printk console messages when reporting a failure to retrieve a reference on a foreign page, which allows remote domains to cause a denial of service by leveraging permissions to map the memory of a foreign guest.
