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

Multiple memory leaks in the iwl_pcie_ctxt_info_gen3_init() function in drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/pcie/ctxt-info-gen3.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allow attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering iwl_pcie_init_fw_sec() or dma_alloc_coherent() failures, aka CID-0f4f199443fa.
