Description Doran Moppert 2020-07-29 07:03:38 UTC
Firefox could be made to load attacker-supplied DLL files from the installation directory.
This required an attacker that is already capable of placing files in the installation directory.


*Note: This issue only affected Windows operating systems. Other operating systems are unaffected.*
