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

Heap-based buffer overflow in src/jsregexp.cc in Google V8 before 1.1.10.14, as used in Google Chrome before 2.0.172.37, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the Chrome sandbox via a crafted JavaScript regular expression.
