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

Mozilla Firefox before 27.0 does not properly restrict access to about:home buttons by script on other pages, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (session restore) via a crafted web site.
