This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is report bp-5682a3d7-a476-4d93-b38c-7a0d22161122. ============================================================= This is the #5 topcrash on Beta. http://www.threatexpert.com/files/cmsetac.dll.html suggests that cmsetac.dll is malware, and some other sites agreed, though I'm not 100% certain. The interesting thing is that the high number of crashes appear to be coming from a tiny number of installations: > Product Version Count Percentage Installations > Firefox 51.0b1 2961 85.4% 3 > Firefox 50.0b99 250 7.2% 3 > Firefox 50.0b11 137 4.0% 1 > Firefox 50.0b9 35 1.0% 1 > Firefox 50.0 34 1.0% 2 > Firefox 50.0b10 30 0.9% 3 > Firefox 50.0b8 19 0.5% 2 > Firefox 51.0a2 1 0.0% 1 dmajor, phillipp: any thoughts? I wanted to have a bug on file but perhaps we should just WONTFIX this one?
all of the reports are coming through the infobar submission mechanism. we already speculated yesterday on irc what may be the cause there, since the frequency of the reports seems quite like a bot: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=cmsetac.dll%400x7178&page=1#reports however based on the reports, there seem to be at least two different machines with different hardware involved, so we could just try adding that apparently malicious module onto the dll-blocklist...
Component: General → Other
Product: Firefox → External Software Affecting Firefox
Created attachment 8813726 [details] [diff] [review] bug1319632_blocklist.patch adding a patch for the dll blocklist, if we want to go that route...
The true volume here is tiny. IMO this isn't worth spending any engineering effort on.
