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 virtio_gpu_set_scanout function in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) built with Virtio GPU Device emulator support allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and process crash) via a scanout id in a VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_SET_SCANOUT command larger than num_scanouts.
