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

Google Chrome before 38.0.2125.101 allows remote attackers to spoof the address bar by placing a blob: substring at the beginning of the URL, followed by the original URI scheme and a long username string.
