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

Thunderbird 0.6 through 0.9 and Mozilla 1.7 through 1.7.3 does not obey the network.cookie.disableCookieForMailNews preference, which could allow remote attackers to bypass the user's intended privacy and security policy by using cookies in e-mail messages.
