It was discovered that when a Dino client receives a specifically crafted message from an unauthorized sender, it would use information from that message to add, update or remove entries in the user’s personal bookmark store without requiring further user interaction.

This vulnerability allows the attacker to change how group chats are displayed or to force a user to join or leave an attacker-selected groupchat. This can be used to trick the user to reveal sensitive information to the attacker.


All deployments should upgrade to a fixed version or apply the patch from commit ef8fb0e94ce79d5fde2943e433ad0422eb7f70ec.
