Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mozilla Firefox Password Manager. A remote user can obtain saved form password and field values. Some user interaction is required.

The Password Manager does not properly validate web forms when filling in saved form field values (including passwords). A remote user can create a specially crafted form on a web site for which the browser has saved the target user's password. When the user performs an action (such as clicking on a submit button or object), the form values can be sent to a different web site than the user expects.

This vulnerability is being actively exploited as part of some phishing attacks.
