Description

On Linux machines with gnome-vfs support the smb: and sftp: URI schemes are available in Firefox. Georgi Guninski showed that if an attacker can store the attack page in a mutually accessible location on the target server (/tmp perhaps) and lure the victim into loading it, the attacker could potentially read any file owned by the victim from known locations on that server.
