Description Josh Bressers 2009-04-17 15:09:56 UTC
Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that when an Adobe Flash
file is loaded via the view-source: protocol, the Flash plugin
misinterprets the origin of the content as localhost, leading to two
specific vulnerabilities:

   1. The Flash file can bypass restrictions imposed by the crossdomain.xml
mechanism and initiate HTTP requests to arbitrary third-party sites. This
vulnerability could be used by an attacker to perform CSRF attacks against
these sites.
   2. The Flash file, being treated as a local resource, can read and write
Local Shared Objects on a user's machine. This vulnerability could be used
by an attacker to place cookie-like objects on a user's computer and track
them across multiple sites.

Additonally, Fleischer reported that the jar: protocol could be used to
bypass restrictions normally preventing content loaded via view-source:
from being rendered.
