CVE-2016-1965

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 45.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.7 mishandle a navigation sequence that returns to the original page, which allows remote attackers to spoof the address bar via vectors involving the history.back method and the location.protocol property.
