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

The ThemeInstalledInfoBarDelegate::Observe function in browser/extensions/theme_installed_infobar_delegate.cc in Google Chrome before 8.0.552.224 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.343 does not properly handle incorrect tab interaction by an extension, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted extension.
