Description

An update for firefox is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

This update upgrades Firefox to version 52.5.1 ESR.

Security Fix(es) :

  • A privacy flaw was discovered in Firefox. In Private Browsing mode, a web worker could write persistent data to IndexedDB, which was not cleared when exiting and would persist across multiple sessions. A malicious website could exploit the flaw to bypass private-browsing protections and uniquely fingerprint visitors. (CVE-2017-7843)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Konark as the original reporter.
