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 48.0 and Firefox ESR 45.x before 45.3 on Linux make cairo _cairo_surface_get_extents calls that do not properly interact with libav header allocation in FFmpeg 0.10, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted video.
