===================================
Mozilla Security Advisory MSA05-005
===================================

Title:      Input stealing from other tabs
Severity:   High
Reporter:   Jakob Balle (Secunia)

Fixed in:   Firefox 1.0
            Mozilla Suite 1.7.5


Description
-----------
Jakob Balle of Secunia reported two vulnerabilities in windows with multiple
tabs. Malicious content in a background tab can attempt to steal information
intended for the topmost tab by popping up prompt dialog that appears to come
from the trusted site, or by silently redirecting input focus to a background
tab hoping to catch the user inputting something sensitive.

Jesse Ruderman and Martin Wargers discovered variants


Workaround
----------
Do not open sites with sensitive content in the same window as tabs from
untrusted content.
Upgrade to fixed version.

The latest seamonkey package deprecates seamonkey.  I'm closing this bug.
