Description Andrej Nemec 2018-12-18 12:38:53 UTC
It was discovered that an HTTP basic authentication dialog could be triggered when using enigmail and Web Key Discovery, an optional OpenPGP feature. Entering a recipient address will issue HTTP request which, in return, may cause an auth dialog to appear. The scenario is that e-mail or other credentials will be entered by the user.
