CVE-2012-3973

HIGH
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 debugger in the developer-tools subsystem in Mozilla Firefox before 15.0, when remote debugging is disabled, does not properly restrict access to the remote-debugging service, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by leveraging the presence of the HTTPMonitor extension and connecting to that service through the HTTPMonitor port.
