Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-19 21:24:03 EST
Mozilla Security Advisory MSA05-009

Title:      Browser responds to proxy auth request from non-proxy server (ssl/https)
Severity:   High
Reporter:   Christopher Nebergall

Fixed in:   Firefox 1.0
            Mozilla Suite 1.7.5

If a proxy is configured the browser would respond to a 407 proxy auth
request from any SSL-connected server rather than only responding to
the configured proxy server. This could leak NTLM or SPNEGO credentials
outside the organization.

Upgrade to the fixed version
