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

Multiple integer overflows in X.org libXi before 1.7.7 allow remote X servers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds memory access or infinite loop) via vectors involving length fields.
