Description Josh Bressers 2006-04-12 22:28:35 EDT
File stealing by changing input type

Claus Jørgensen reports that a text input box can be pre-filled with a
filename  and then turned into a file-upload control with the contents
intact, allowing a malicious website the ability to steal any local file
whose name they can guess.

Jesse Ruderman reports a variation, changing the type of the input control
in an event handler to work around some of the initial checks.


Upgrade to fixed version.
