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 TIFFReadRawStrip1 and TIFFReadRawTile1 functions in tif_read.c in libtiff before 4.0.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly obtain sensitive information via a negative index in a file-content buffer.
