Pale Moon updated to 27.8.2

Post by Moonchild » 2018-03-22, 11:55

This is a security update.

Changes/fixes:
  • Privacy fix: prevented update checks for the default theme.
  • Added a user-agent override for Dropbox to improve compatibility with their service.
  • Fixed an issue with mouseover handling related to (CVE-2018-5103). DiD
  • Disabled the Mac OSX Nano allocator. DiD
  • Fixed (CVE-2018-5129) OOB Write.
  • Updated the lz4 library to 1.8.0 to solve potential issues. DiD
  • Fixed (CVE-2018-5137) Path traversal on chrome:// URLs
  • Fixed several memory safety an synchronicity hazards.
DiD This means that the fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.
