CVE-2017-7840

Status Candidate

Overview

JavaScript can be injected into an exported bookmarks file by placing JavaScript code into user-supplied tags in saved bookmarks. If the resulting exported HTML file is later opened in a browser this JavaScript will be executed. This could be used in social engineering and self-cross-site-scripting (self-XSS) attacks if users were convinced to add malicious tags to bookmarks, export them, and then open the resulting file. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 57.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3477-4 - USN-3477-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The update introduced a crash reporting issue where background tab crash reports were sent to Mozilla without user opt-in. This update fixes the problem. Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, read uninitialized memory, obtain sensitive information, bypass same-origin restrictions, bypass CSP protections, bypass mixed content blocking, spoof the addressbar, or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox.

It was discovered that javascript: URLs pasted in to the addressbar would be executed instead of being blocked in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to copying a specially crafted URL in to the addressbar, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. It was discovered that exported bookmarks do not strip script elements from user-supplied tags.
