CVE-2019-11751: Malicious code execution through command line parameters

Reporter   Ping Fan (Zetta) Ke of VXRL working with iDefense Labs
Impact     critical

Description
Logging-related command line parameters are not properly sanitized when Firefox is launched by another program, such as when a user clicks on malicious links in a chat application. This can be used to write a log file to an arbitrary location such as the Windows 'Startup' folder. 

** Note: this issue only affects Firefox on Windows operating systems. **
