Description Josh Bressers 2009-06-01 18:53:42 UTC
Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that local resources loaded
via the file: protocol can access any domain's cookies which have been
saved on a user's machine. Fleischer demonstrated that a local document's
domain was being calculated incorrectly from its URL. If a victim could be
persuaded to download a malicious file and then open that file in their
browser, the malicious file could then steal arbitrary cookies from the
victim's computer. Due to the interaction required for this attack, the
severity of the issue was determined to be moderate.
