CVE-2012-1965

MEDIUM
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 4.x through 13.0 and Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6 do not properly establish the security context of a feed: URL, which allows remote attackers to bypass unspecified cross-site scripting (XSS) protection mechanisms via a feed:javascript: URL.
