Severity Medium
Score 5/10


content/renderer/device_sensors/ in Google Chrome before 41.0.2272.76 does not properly restrict access to high-rate accelerometer data, which makes it easier for remote attackers to capture keystrokes via a crafted web site that listens for ondevicemotion events, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-1231.

CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls

CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
