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

Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 through 11 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code and bypass a sandbox protection mechanism by leveraging "object confusion" in a broker process, as demonstrated by VUPEN during a Pwn2Own competition at CanSecWest 2014.
