Description

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)
