CVE-2018-12383 (retired)

Priority
Description
If a user saved passwords before Firefox 58 and then later set a master
password, an unencrypted copy of these passwords is still accessible. This
is because the older stored password file was not deleted when the data was
copied to a new format starting in Firefox 58. The new master password is
added only on the new file. This could allow the exposure of stored
password data outside of user expectations. This vulnerability affects
Firefox < 62, Firefox ESR < 60.2.1, and Thunderbird < 60.2.1.
