New Delhi, June 7 (IANS) The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has flagged several bugs in Chrome OS and Mozilla products that may put various sensitive data at risk.

“These vulnerabilities exist in Mozilla Firefox due to SQL injection in the history tab, Cross-Origin resources length leaked, Heap buffer overflow in WebGL, Browser window spoof using full-screen mode…” CERT-In said on its website.

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a victim to open a specially crafted web request.
