A local user can obtain a private key used for managing SSL connections and conduct attacks against SSL connections initiated by the target user's browser.

When the target user explicitly trusts an invalid SSL certificate for a specific site, a remote user may be able to bypass certificate validation warnings for sites listed in the Subject Alternative Names of the original invalid SSL certificate.

A remote user that can conduct a man-in-the-middle attack can exploit an SSL certificate caching error to access SSL connections initiated by the target user's browser for a site by IP address.

Tavis Ormandy reported these vulnerabilities.
