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 8.0.552.224 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.343 do not properly perform cursor handling, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors that lead to "stale pointers."
