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

A heap-based buffer over-read exists in the function fast_edit_packet() in the file send_packets.c of Tcpreplay v4.3.0 beta1. This can lead to Denial of Service (DoS) and potentially Information Exposure when the application attempts to process a crafted pcap file.
