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

A race condition in Opera web browser 7.53 Build 3850 causes Opera to fill in the address bar before the page has been loaded, which allows remote attackers to spoof the URL in the address bar via the window.open and location.replace HTML parameters, which facilitates phishing attacks.
