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

The txMozillaXSLTProcessor::TransformToDoc function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.8 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.16 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an XML file with a crafted XSLT transform.
