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

Use-after-free vulnerability in WebKit before r65958, as used in Google Chrome before 6.0.472.59, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that trigger use of document APIs such as document.close during parsing, as demonstrated by a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) file referencing an invalid SVG font, aka rdar problem 8442098.
