Description

Mozilla Firefox before 34.0, Firefox ESR 31.x before 31.3, and Thunderbird before 31.3 on Apple OS X 10.10 omit a CoreGraphics disable-logging action that is needed by jemalloc-based applications, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading /tmp files, as demonstrated by credential information.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-31_3
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-34_0
