Description:   A vulnerability was reported in the NetCaptor browser in the tabbed browsing feature. A remote user may be able to spoof web page functions or obtain potentially sensitive information from the target user.

Secunia Research reported that when a target user has multiple tabs open, an inactive tab can issue a dialog box that will be displayed even though the target user is currently viewing a different tab. As a result, a remote user may be able to spoof functions on the web site in the active tab.

A demonstration exploit is available at:

It is also reported that a web form field in an inactive tab can gain focus. As a result, a target user that is not paying attention to the display monitor may type information into a form on the inactive tab.
