Description Josh Bressers 2008-11-10 12:39:30 EST
Mozilla developer Georgi Guninski reported that the canvas element could be
used in conjunction with an HTTP redirect to bypass same-origin
restrictions and gain access to the content in arbitrary images from other
domains. This vulnerability could be used by an attacker to steal private
information from a victim who is logged into a website that stores the data
in images.

Security researchers Michal Zalewski and Chris Evans also reported an
additional threat caused by this vulnerability in which an attacker can
enumerate the software installed on a victim's computer by using moz-icon
as the redirection target.

Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue.
