ftp URIs are handled as downloads so the tab suddenly closes
Product Affected: Epiphany 3.28.1
Tested on : Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
It was observed that, if
ftp request is browse, the browser suddenly get self close.
Steps to reproduce
- Open epiphany
- Navigate to ftp://127/.0.0.1/
- The browser gets close.
I am not sure if this is working as intended, but marking this issue confidential because, an attacker can simple send a crafted page which can disrupt/close the browser on victims end.
