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 was discovered in the tcpreplay-edit binary of Tcpreplay 4.3.0 beta1, during the incremental checksum operation. The issue gets triggered in the function csum_replace4() in incremental_checksum.h, causing a denial of service.
