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

components/sessionstore/src/nsSessionStore.js in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.6 does not block changes of INPUT elements to type="file" during tab restoration, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to read arbitrary files on a client machine via a crafted INPUT element.
