Pale Moon 27.9.4 changelog:
- Updated the useragent for addons.mozilla.org to work around their "Only with Firefox" discrimination preventing users from downloading themes, old versions of extensions, and other files with Pale Moon.
- Restricted web access to the moz-icon:// scheme that could potentially be abused to infringe the user's privacy.
- Prevented various location-based threats. DiD
- Fixed a potential vulnerability with plugins being redirected to different origins (CVE-2018-12364).
- Improved the security check for launching executable files (by association) on Windows from the browser. For users who have (most likely accidentally) granted a system-wide waiver for opening these kinds of files without being prompted, this permission has been reset.
- Fixed an issue with invalid qcms transforms (CVE-2018-12366).
- Fixed a buffer overflow using the computed size of canvas elements (CVE-2018-12359).
- Fixed a use-after-free when using focus() (CVE-2018-12360).
- Added some sanity checks on nsMozIconURI. DiD
- Fixed an issue in the case the preferences file in the profile would not be writable (e.g. temporary permission issues due to backup, virus scanning or similar external processes).
