ID CVE-2018-5119
Summary The reader view will display cross-origin content when CORS headers are set to prohibit the loading of cross-origin content by a site. This could allow access to content that should be restricted in reader view. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 58.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

    description USN-3544-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The update caused a web compatibility regression and a tab crash during printing in some circumstances. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. 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 via application crash, spoof the origin in audio capture prompts, trick the user in to providing HTTP credentials for another origin, spoof the addressbar contents, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5089, CVE-2018-5090, CVE-2018-5091, CVE-2018-5092, CVE-2018-5093, CVE-2018-5094, CVE-2018-5095, CVE-2018-5097, CVE-2018-5098, CVE-2018-5099, CVE-2018-5100, CVE-2018-5101, CVE-2018-5102, CVE-2018-5103, CVE-2018-5104, CVE-2018-5109, CVE-2018-5114, CVE-2018-5115, CVE-2018-5117, CVE-2018-5122) Multiple security issues were discovered in WebExtensions. If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafted extension, an attacker could potentially exploit these to gain additional privileges, bypass same-origin restrictions, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5105, CVE-2018-5113, CVE-2018-5116) A security issue was discovered with the developer tools. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website with the developer tools open, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information from other origins. (CVE-2018-5106) A security issue was discovered with printing. An attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information from local files. (CVE-2018-5107) It was discovered that manually entered blob URLs could be accessed by subsequent private browsing tabs. If a user were tricked in to entering a blob URL, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information from a private browsing context. (CVE-2018-5108) It was discovered that dragging certain specially formatted URLs to the addressbar could cause the wrong URL to be displayed. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website and dragging a URL to the addressbar, an attacker could potentially exploit this to spoof the addressbar contents. (CVE-2018-5111) It was discovered that WebExtension developer tools panels could open non-relative URLs. If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafted extension and running the developer tools, an attacker could potentially exploit this to gain additional privileges. (CVE-2018-5112) It was discovered that ActivityStream images can attempt to load local content through file: URLs. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this in combination with another vulnerability that allowed sandbox protections to be bypassed, in order to obtain sensitive information from local files. (CVE-2018-5118) It was discovered that the reader view will load cross-origin content in violation of CORS headers. An attacker could exploit this to bypass CORS restrictions. (CVE-2018-5119). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
