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 mozilla::net::FailDelayManager::Lookup function in the WebSockets implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 16.0.1, Thunderbird before 16.0.1, and SeaMonkey before 2.13.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.
