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

Firefox before 1.0 and Mozilla before 1.7.5 allow inactive (background) tabs to focus on input being entered in the active tab, as originally reported using form fields, which allows remote attackers to steal sensitive data that is intended for other sites, which could facilitate phishing attacks.
