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

browser/worker_host/message_port_dispatcher.cc in Google Chrome before 8.0.552.224 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.343 does not properly handle certain postMessage calls, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via crafted JavaScript code that creates a web worker.
