Description

Mozilla Firefox before 37.0 does not require an HTTPS session for lightweight theme add-on installations, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to bypass an intended user-confirmation requirement by deploying a crafted web site and conducting a DNS spoofing attack against a mozilla.org subdomain.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-37_0
