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

Google Chrome before 2.0.172.37 allows attackers to leverage renderer access to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that trigger excessive memory allocation.
