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 Updater in Mozilla Firefox before 21.0 on Windows does not properly maintain Mozilla Maintenance Service registry entries in certain situations involving upgrades from older Firefox versions, which allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging write access to a "trusted path."
