Title: Secure site lock can be spoofed with a binary download
Fixed in: Firefox 1.0
Mozilla Suite 1.7.5
While on an insecure page triggering a load of a binary file from
a secure server will cause the SSL lock icon to appear. The certificate
information is that of the binary file's host, while the location bar URL
correctly shows the original insecure page.
This could potentially be abused by phishers to make their fake login sites
appear more authentic.
Upgrade to fixed version
