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 X.509 certificate validation functionality in Mozilla Firefox 4.0.x through 4.0.1 does not properly implement single-session security exceptions, which might make it easier for user-assisted remote attackers to spoof an SSL server via an untrusted certificate that triggers potentially unwanted local caching of documents from that server.
