CVE-2018-12367 Mozilla: Timing attack mitigation of PerformanceNavigationTiming
Last modified: 2018-06-26 20:58:43 EDT
In the previous mitigations for Spectre, the resolution or precision of various methods was reduced to counteract the ability to measure measuring precise time intervals. In that work, `PerformanceNavigationTiming` was not adjusted but it was found that it could be used as a precision timer.
