Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-01-18 11:56:17 UTC
embed/ephy-web-view.c in GNOME Web (aka Epiphany) through 3.31.4 allows address
bar spoofing because a page load triggered by JavaScript leads to updating an
address as if it were triggered by a safer visit type (e.g., VISIT_LINK,
VISIT_TYPED, VISIT_BOOKMARK, or VISIT_HOMEPAGE).

Comment 2 Michael Catanzaro 2019-04-11 16:31:18 UTC
Note the CVE description and affected component are wrong. Affected component is WebKitGTK. Suggested description:

Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to spoofing. WebKitGTK and WPE WebKit were vulnerable to a URI spoofing attack similar to the CVE-2018-8383 issue in Microsoft Edge.

Comment 3 Michael Catanzaro 2019-04-11 16:35:06 UTC

Comment 4 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-05-13 11:11:27 UTC
Earlier this flaw was filed with wrong description and wrong component as reported.
Updated with correct information:

CVE-2019-6251:
Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to spoofing. WebKitGTK and WPE WebKit were vulnerable to a URI spoofing attack similar to the CVE-2018-8383 issue in Microsoft Edge.
