Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 19.04 : firefox vulnerability (USN-4101-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 128026
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that passwords could be copied to the clipboard from the 'Saved Logins' dialog without entering the master password, even when a master password has been set. A local attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain saved passwords.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected firefox package.
