CRITICAL
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 (1) XvQueryAdaptors and (2) XvQueryEncodings functions in X.org libXv before 1.0.11 allow remote X servers to trigger out-of-bounds memory access operations via vectors involving length specifications in received data.
