Vulnerability Note VU#305096
Comodo Chromodo browser with Ad Sanitizer does not enforce same origin policy and is based on an outdated version of Chromium
Comodo Chromodo browser, version 188.8.131.521, and possibly earlier, bundles the Ad Sanitizer extension, version 184.108.40.206, which disables the same origin policy, allowing for the possibility of cross-domain attacks by malicious or compromised web hosts. Chromodo is based on an outdated release of Chromium with known vulnerabilities.
Comodo Chromodo is a web browser that comes packaged with Comodo Internet Security. It is based on Chromium 45.0.2454.93, which was released in September 2015. By default, the browser uses the Ad Sanitizer extension by AdtrustMedia, which disables same origin protections and allows for an attacker to access a victim user's web content from other domains via a specially crafted web page.
According to the original disclosure by the Project Zero team at Google, version 220.127.116.112 was released to address attacks based on the use of execCode. Version 18.104.22.1682 appears to remove Ad Sanitizer.
By convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web page, an attacker can obtain access to web content from another domain.
The CERT/CC is currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem and recommends the following workarounds.
Disable or remove Ad Sanitizer
