Endpoint Vulnerability

Arbitrary code execution within Profiler

Description

Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported that when a user examines the profiler output on a malicious website containing specially crafted code, it is possible for arbitrary code execution to occur. This occurs because the profiler user interface runs in a special iframe that parses data from the profiler to render the UI, leaving it susceptible to manipulation.
