CVE-2015-7216

MEDIUM
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 gdk-pixbuf configuration in Mozilla Firefox before 43.0 on Linux GNOME platforms incorrectly enables the JasPer decoder, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted JPEG 2000 image.
