CVE-2015-6779

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

PDFium, as used in Google Chrome before 47.0.2526.73, does not properly restrict use of chrome: URLs, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended scheme restrictions via a crafted PDF document, as demonstrated by a document with a link to a chrome://settings URL.
