CVE-2017-7840

Priority
Description
JavaScript can be injected into an exported bookmarks file by placing
JavaScript code into user-supplied tags in saved bookmarks. If the
resulting exported HTML file is later opened in a browser this JavaScript
will be executed. This could be used in social engineering and
self-cross-site-scripting (self-XSS) attacks if users were convinced to add
malicious tags to bookmarks, export them, and then open the resulting file.
This vulnerability affects Firefox < 57.
