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

Memory leak in the vcard_apdu_new function in card_7816.c in libcacard before 2.5.3 allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host memory consumption) via vectors related to allocating a new APDU object.
