CVE-2015-4478

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 40.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.2 do not impose certain ECMAScript 6 requirements on JavaScript object properties, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via the reviver parameter to the JSON.parse method.
