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

js/src/jstracer.cpp in the Just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compiler (aka TraceMonkey) in Mozilla Firefox 3.5 before 3.5.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain use of the escape function that triggers access to uninitialized memory locations, as originally demonstrated by a document containing P and FONT elements.
