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

Use-after-free vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document in conjunction with a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) token sequence specifying the run-in value for the display property, leading to improper CElement reference counting.
