    Description
    ===========
    
    An issue has been found in Firefox before 68.0.2. When a master
    password is set, it is required to be entered before stored passwords
    can be accessed in the 'Saved Logins' dialog. It was found that locally
    stored passwords can be copied to the clipboard through the 'copy
    password' context menu item without first entering the master password,
    allowing for potential theft of stored passwords.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A local attacker is able to obtain stored passwords without first
    entering the master password leading to information disclosure.
