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

toolkit/components/passwordmgr/src/nsLoginManagerPrompter.js in the asynchronous Authorization Prompt implementation in Mozilla Firefox 3.6 before 3.6.2 does not properly handle concurrent authorization requests from multiple web sites, which might allow remote web servers to spoof an authorization dialog and capture credentials by demanding HTTP authentication in opportunistic circumstances.
