Vulnerability identifier: #VU46021

Vulnerability risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 3.2 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15666

CWE-ID: CWE-200

Exploitation vector: Network

Exploit availability: No

Vulnerable software:
Mozilla Firefox
Client/Desktop applications / Web browsers

Vendor: Mozilla

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to excessive data output in an MediaError message. When trying to load a non-video in an audio/video context the exact status code (200, 302, 404, 500, 412, 403, etc.) was disclosed via the MediaError Message. This level of information leakage is inconsistent with the standardized onerror/onsuccess disclosure and can lead to inferring login status to services or device discovery on a local network among other attacks.

Mitigation
Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Mozilla Firefox: 70.0 - 79.0
