Security Advisory

1) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 3.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-11762

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to the way Firefox processes two same-origin documents that set document.domain differently to become cross-origin. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted web page, trick the victim into visiting it and gain access to potentially sensitive information, as it is possible to call arbitrary DOM methods/getters/setters on the now-cross-origin window.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
