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 ReadCAPTIONImage function in coders/caption.c in ImageMagick 7.0.7-3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted font file.
