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

Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 44.0.2403.89, enables a quirks-mode exception that limits the cases in which a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) document is required to have the text/css content type, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted web site, related to core/fetch/CSSStyleSheetResource.cpp.
