New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that Chrome UI code was overly trusting DOM nodes from the content window, allowing privilege escalation via DOM property overrides.
shutdown discovered a technique to pollute the global scope of a window in a way that persists from page to page.
The following Firefox-specific vulnerabilities have also been discovered:
The memory disclosure issue can be used to reveal potentially sensitive information. Finally, the cache pollution issue and search plugin abuse can be leveraged in cross-site-scripting attacks.
There is no known workaround at this time.
