Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-07-02 12:35:50 UTC
Tor Browser through 8.5.3 has an information exposure vulnerability. It allows remote attackers to detect the browser's language via vectors involving an IFRAME element, because text in that language is included in the title attribute of a LINK element for a non-HTML page. This is related to a behavior of Firefox before 68.

Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-07-02 12:36:54 UTC
Created tor tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1726253]

Comment 2 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-07-02 12:37:42 UTC
Created tor tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1726254]

Comment 3 Marcel Haerry 2019-07-09 06:39:53 UTC
Please note that this CVE affects torbrowser and not tor. We don't ship torbrowser (neither in Fedora nor in EPEL) and I closed the tracking bugs opened against tor, as they can't be fixed there.
