CVE-2016-1685

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

core/fxge/ge/fx_ge_text.cpp in PDFium, as used in Google Chrome before 51.0.2704.63, miscalculates certain index values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a crafted PDF document.
