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 42.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.4, when a Java plugin is enabled, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect garbage collection and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted Java applet that deallocates an in-use JavaScript wrapper.
