ID: CVE-2013-7331
Title: Microsoft XMLDOM ActiveX Control Multiple Information Disclosure
Vulnerabilities
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: The Microsoft.XMLDOM ActiveX control in Microsoft Windows

IP addresses by examining error codes, as demonstrated by a res:// URL,
and exploited in the wild in February 2014.

Vendor: Mozilla
Description: The Web IDL implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 28.0,

with chrome privileges by using an IDL fragment to trigger a window.open

to (1) produce_burn.cgi, (2) register_debug.cgi, or (3)
bootcode_update.cgi.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 8.3 (AV:A/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
