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

In Foxit Reader and PhantomPDF before 10.0.1, and PhantomPDF before 9.7.3, attackers can obtain sensitive information from an out-of-bounds read because a text-string index continues to be used after splitting a string into two parts. A crash may also occur.
