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 UnacceleratedImageBufferSurface class in WebKit/Source/platform/graphics/UnacceleratedImageBufferSurface.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 48.0.2564.82, mishandles the initialization mode, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory via a crafted web site.
