SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015553

Updated:  Feb 2 2006
Original Entry Date:  Jan 31 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.5 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can conduct cross-domain scripting attacks.

The Mozilla Firefox browser '-moz-binding' CSS property does not properly restrict HTML code from other domains before displaying the input. A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code can originate from an arbitrary domain but will run in the security context of the domain serving the HTML. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the domain, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the domain, or take actions on the domain acting as the target user.

The bug report is available at:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324253

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with an arbitrary 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.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ (Links to External Site)
