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

An issue was discovered in Magick++ in ImageMagick 6.9.7. A specially crafted file creating a nested exception could lead to a memory leak (thus, a DoS).
