A remote captive portal may be able to read or write cookies on the target user's system [CVE-2016-1730]. Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit of Skycure reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
