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 3.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, application hang, and memory consumption) via a KEYGEN element in conjunction with (1) a META element specifying automatic page refresh or (2) a JavaScript onLoad event handler for a BODY element. NOTE: it was later reported that earlier versions are also affected.
