CVE-2015-0804

HIGH
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

The HTMLSourceElement::BindToTree function in Mozilla Firefox before 37.0 does not properly constrain a data type after omitting namespace validation during certain tree-binding operations, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted HTML document containing a SOURCE element.
