Firefox exploit allows password-stealing

Posted on Tuesday, July 24 2007 @ 18:44:23 CEST by


Security researchers have found a new critical bug in Firefox 2.0.0.5 which allows malicious websites to steal your passwords if you have JavaScript enabled and allow Firefox to remember your passwords.
The Mozilla team fixed a similar flaw last November, one which did not require JavaScript. The heise Security Web site contains a demo/proof of concept of the vulnerability risk that you can use to determine your vulnerability.

The original flaw was referred to as reverse cross-site scripting and was reportedly widely used on Myspace.com.
