Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-19 21:17:45 EST
Mozilla Security Advisory MSA05-008

Title:      Synthetic middle-click event can steal clipboard contents
Severity:   Moderate
Reporter:   Jesse Ruderman

Fixed in:   Firebird 1.0
            Mozilla Suite 1.7.5

Script-generated middle-click events can steal clipboard contents
on systems where that action is a paste. Middle-click paste is the
default behavior on Unix systems, and a hidden option elsewhere.

Disable javascript or upgrade to fixed version.
