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/core/layout/LayoutBlock.cpp in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 49.0.2623.75, does not properly determine when anonymous block wrappers may exist, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect cast and assertion failure) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JavaScript code.
