New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 44.0 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to uninitialized memory encountered during brotli data compression, and other vectors.
