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

Two memory leaks in the v3d_submit_cl_ioctl() function in drivers/gpu/drm/v3d/v3d_gem.c in the Linux kernel before 5.3.11 allow attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering kcalloc() or v3d_job_init() failures, aka CID-29cd13cfd762.
