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 memory leak in the dwc3_pci_probe() function in drivers/usb/dwc3/dwc3-pci.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.9 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering platform_device_add_properties() failures, aka CID-9bbfceea12a8.
