Description Andreas Stieger 2015-04-01 10:32:49 UTC
Add-on lightweight theme installation approval bypassed through MITM attack

Announced:     March 31, 2015
Reporter:     Armin Razmdjou
Impact:     Moderate
Products:     Firefox
Fixed in:     Firefox 37

Description

Security researcher Armin Razmdjou discovered that a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker spoofing a Mozilla sub-domain could bypass user approval messages to install a Firefox lightweight theme. This was possible because add-on installations of the lightweight themes do not require the use of HTTP over SSL. Firefox extensions were not directly affected and still required user approval for installation.
