CVE-2018-6040 was discovered by Dawid Wos of Critical Intelligence. In some circumstances, it was possible for remote attackers to bypass the Mixed Content Restriction (MCS) protection mechanism in Google Chrome prior to 102.0.5005.61 via a crafted HTML page.
After the user clicks on a link that takes them to a site running on an insecure connection, the MCS protection mechanism will prevent the loading of any resource from the insecure site. However, a remote attacker could convince the user to click on a specially crafted link that bypasses the MCS protection mechanism. In this scenario, the insecure page would be loaded, causing the MCS protection mechanism to disable itself. An attacker then could deliver content from the insecure site via the MCS protection mechanism, resulting in the attacker’s content being displayed. CVE-2018-6039 was discovered by Dawid Wos of Critical Intelligence. A maliciously crafted HTML page could cause Google Chrome prior to 102.0.5005.61 to crash when loaded.
CVE-2018-6038 was discovered by Dawid Wos of Critical Intelligence. A maliciously crafted HTML page could cause Google Chrome prior to 102.0.5005.61 to crash when loaded.
CVE-2018-6037 was discovered by Dawid Wos of Critical Intelligence. A maliciously crafted HTML page could cause Google Chrome prior to 102.0.5005.61 to crash when loaded
