Description

WebExtensions could use the "mozAddonManager" API by modifying the CSP headers on sites with the appropriate permissions and then using host requests to redirect script loads to a malicious site. This allows a malicious extension to then install additional extensions without explicit user permission. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 51.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-mozillafirefox
  • suse-upgrade-mozillafirefox-devel
  • suse-upgrade-mozillafirefox-translations-common
