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 cairo-dwrite implementation in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 11.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.4, Thunderbird 5.0 through 11.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.9, when certain Windows Vista and Windows 7 configurations are used, does not properly restrict font-rendering attempts, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.
