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

Integer overflow in the load_multiboot function in hw/i386/multiboot.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows local guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host via crafted multiboot header address values, which trigger an out-of-bounds write.
