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 error in the "read_metadata_vorbiscomment_()" function (src/libFLAC/stream_decoder.c) in FLAC version 1.3.2 can be exploited to cause a memory leak via a specially crafted FLAC file.
