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 does not require an HTTPS session for lightweight theme add-on installations, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to bypass an intended user-confirmation requirement by deploying a crafted web site and conducting a DNS spoofing attack against a mozilla.org subdomain.
