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

Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in the (1) full installer and (2) stub installer in Mozilla Firefox before 23.0 on Windows allow local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse DLL in the default downloads directory. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-4206.
