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

The Add-on SDK in Mozilla Firefox before 42.0 misinterprets a "script: false" panel setting, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via inline JavaScript code that is executed within a third-party extension.
