CVE-2014-1480

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

The file-download implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 27.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.24 does not properly restrict the timing of button selections, which allows remote attackers to conduct clickjacking attacks, and trigger unintended launching of a downloaded file, via a crafted web site.
