CVE-2015-6776

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 opj_dwt_decode_1* functions in dwt.c in OpenJPEG, as used in PDFium in Google Chrome before 47.0.2526.73, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JPEG 2000 data that is mishandled during a discrete wavelet transform.
