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

Heap-based buffer overflow in the UTF8ToNewUnicode function for Firefox before 1.0.1 and Mozilla before 1.7.6 might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via invalid sequences in a UTF8 encoded string that result in a zero length value.
