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

Race condition in the WorkerPrivate::NotifyFeatures function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) by leveraging improper interaction between shared workers and the IndexedDB implementation.
