New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 46.0 and Firefox ESR 45.x before 45.1 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.
