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

QEMU (aka Quick Emulator), when built with the e1000e NIC emulation support, allows local guest OS privileged users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors related to setting the initial receive / transmit descriptor head (TDH/RDH) outside the allocated descriptor buffer.
