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

Integer overflow in the jas_matrix_create function in JasPer allows context-dependent attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted JPEG 2000 image, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation.
