Mozilla Firefox Input Validation Flaw in Popup Blocking Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016849
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1016849
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-4569   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Sep 15 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 1.5.0.7
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Blocked popups that are opened by the target user via the status bar "blocked popups" icon are opened in the context of the site listed in the Location (address) bar, even if the blocked popup was originally opened by a subframe loaded from another site. As a result, the popup can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will run in the security context of the site listed in the Location bar. The code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The vendor notes that the threat of a site framing a malicious page that is subsequently opened manually by the target user may be limited.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with a site that frames a malicious page, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
