CVE-2015-8746

HIGH
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

fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFS client in the Linux kernel before 4.2.2 does not properly initialize memory for migration recovery operations, which allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) via crafted network traffic.
