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 0.9, Thunderbird 0.6 and other versions before 0.9, and Mozilla 1.7 before 1.7.5 save temporary files with world-readable permissions, which allows local users to read certain web content or attachments that belong to other users, e.g. content that is managed by helper applications such as PDF.
