#CVE-2019-9815: Disable hyperthreading on content JavaScript threads on macOS

Reporter
Multiple independent researchers
Impact
high
Description

If hyperthreading is not disabled, a timing attack vulnerability exists, similar to previous Spectre attacks. Apple has shipped macOS 10.14.5 with an option to disable hyperthreading in applications running untrusted code in a thread through a new sysctl. Firefox now makes use of it on the main thread and any worker threads.
Note: users need to update to macOS 10.14.5 in order to take advantage of this change.

#CVE-2019-9800: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 67, Firefox ESR 60.7, and Thunderbird 60.7

Reporter
Mozilla developers and community
Impact
critical
Description

Mozilla developers and community members Olli Pettay, Bogdan Tara, Jan de Mooij, Jason Kratzer, Jan Varga, Gary Kwong, Tim Guan-tin Chien, Tyson Smith, Ronald Crane, and Ted Campbell reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 66, Firefox ESR 60.6, and Thunderbird 60.6. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
