CVE-2016-1699

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

WebKit/Source/devtools/front_end/devtools.js in the Developer Tools (aka DevTools) subsystem in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 51.0.2704.79, does not ensure that the remoteFrontendUrl parameter is associated with a chrome-devtools-frontend.appspot.com URL, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted URL.
