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

On BIG-IP version 16.0.x before 16.0.1.1 and 15.1.x before 15.1.3, malformed HTTP/2 requests may cause an infinite loop which causes a Denial of Service for Data Plane traffic. TMM takes the configured HA action when the TMM process is aborted. There is no control plane exposure, this is a data plane issue only. Note: Software versions which have reached End of Technical Support (EoTS) are not evaluated.
