Description

Mozilla Firefox before 39.0, Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.1, and Thunderbird before 38.1 do not enforce key pinning upon encountering an X.509 certificate problem that generates a user dialog, which allows user-assisted man-in-the-middle attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by triggering a (1) expired certificate or (2) mismatched hostname for a domain with pinning enabled.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-mail-client-thunderbird
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-mail-client-thunderbird-bin
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-client-firefox
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-client-firefox-bin
