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

Mozilla Firefox before 7.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not properly restrict availability of motion data events, which makes it easier for remote attackers to read keystrokes by leveraging JavaScript code running in a background tab.
