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 lha_read_file_extended_header function in archive_read_support_format_lha.c in libarchive before 3.2.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds heap) via a crafted (1) lzh or (2) lha file.
