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 8.0.552.237 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.344 do not properly interact with extensions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted extension that triggers an uninitialized pointer.
