Original advisory details:
Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were

potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, bypass security
restrictions, spoof the URL bar, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-6831, CVE-2020-12387, CVE-2020-12390, CVE-2020-12391,

It was discovered that the Devtools Copy as cURL feature did not
properly HTTP POST data of a request. If a user were tricked in to using
the Copy as cURL feature to copy and paste a command with specially
crafted data in to a terminal, an attacker could potentially exploit this
to obtain sensitive information from local files.
