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 hid_input_field function in drivers/hid/hid-core.c in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) by connecting a device, as demonstrated by a Logitech DJ receiver.
