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

Heap-based buffer overflow in the Icmp6::Recv function in icmp/Icmp6.cc in the pinger utility in Squid before 3.5.16 and 4.x before 4.0.8 allows remote servers to cause a denial of service (performance degradation or transition failures) or write sensitive information to log files via an ICMPv6 packet.
