FreeBSD VuXML: Documenting security issues in FreeBSD and the FreeBSD Ports Collection

qutebrowser -- Reloading page with certificate errors shows a green URL

Affected packages
qutebrowser < 1.11.1


VuXML ID 452d16bb-920d-11ea-9d20-18a6f7016652
Discovery 2020-05-02
Entry 2020-05-09

Qutebrowser developers report:

After a certificate error was overridden by the user, qutebrowser displays the URL as yellow (colors.statusbar.url.warn.fg). However, when the affected website was subsequently loaded again, the URL was mistakenly displayed as green (colors.statusbar.url.success_https). While the user already has seen a certificate error prompt at this point (or set content.ssl_strict to false which is not recommended), this could still provide a false sense of security.
