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 1.0 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via plugins that load "privileged content" into frames, as demonstrated using certain XUL events when a user drags a scrollbar two times, aka "Firescrolling."
