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 37.0 relies on docshell type information instead of page principal information for Window.webidl access control, which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges via certain content navigation that leverages the reachability of a privileged window with an unintended persistence of access to restricted internal methods.
