Hi,

We have recently discovered a series of vulnerabilities in Firefox for Android
that allows a malicious application to successfully derandomize
the Firefox profile directory name in a practical amount of time
and then leak sensitive data (such as cookies and cached
information) which reside in that directory, breaking Android's
sandbox:

1. (CVE-2014-1516) Profile Directory Name Weak Randomization.
2. (CVE-2014-1484) Profile Directory Name Leaks to Android System Log.
3. (CVE-2014-1515) Automatic File Download to SD Card.
4. (CVE-2014-1506) Crash Reporter File Manipulation.

The full analysis with exploitation techniques can be found in our whitepaper.
