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 31.0 and Thunderbird before 31.0 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (X.509 certificate parsing outage) via a crafted certificate that does not use ASCII character encoding in a required context.
