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 implementation of Content Security Policy (CSP) violation reports in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 5, SeaMonkey 2.x before 2.3, and possibly other products does not remove proxy-authorization credentials from the listed request headers, which allows attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading a report, related to incorrect host resolution that occurs with certain redirects.
