CVE-2018-18506

Status Candidate

Overview

When proxy auto-detection is enabled, if a web server serves a Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file or if a PAC file is loaded locally, this PAC file can specify that requests to the localhost are to be sent through the proxy to another server. This behavior is disallowed by default when a proxy is manually configured, but when enabled could allow for attacks on services and tools that bind to the localhost for networked behavior if they are accessed through browsing. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 65.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3874-1 - 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, gain additional privileges by escaping the sandbox, or execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that Firefox allowed PAC files to specify that requests to localhost are sent through the proxy to another server. If proxy auto-detection is enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct attacks on local services and tools. Various other issues were also addressed.
