Description

Multiple Mozilla products contain a flaw that is triggered when a specially crafted HTML page hosted on a windows share is loaded by a user, which may allow for the loading of arbitrary .lnk files located on the same windows share. This grants a local attacker the ability to redirect shortcut files to arbitrary locations, which will allow the attacker to gain access to arbitrary files.
