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

Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5 and earlier 3.0.x versions, when designMode is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a certain (a) replaceChild or (b) removeChild call, followed by a (1) queryCommandValue, (2) queryCommandState, or (3) queryCommandIndeterm call. NOTE: it was later reported that 3.0.6 and 3.0.7 are also affected.
