Description Josh Bressers 2008-06-24 11:31:31 EDT
Mozilla contributor Masahiro Yamada reported that file URLs in directory
listings were not being HTML escaped properly when the filenames contained
particular characters. This resulted in files from directory listings being
opened in unintended ways or files not being able to be opened by the browser
altogether.

Comment 10 Josh Bressers 2008-07-29 12:36:05 EDT
It should be noted that the description used in the security errata is mistaken.
 This issue does not only affect local file listings, but can affect any file
listings such as ftp, gopher, and jar schemas.
