Description Tomas Hoger 2009-01-21 08:55:34 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-5913 to the following vulnerability:

An unspecified function in the JavaScript implementation in Mozilla
Firefox creates and exposes a "temporary footprint" when there is a
current login to a web site, which makes it easier for remote
attackers to trick a user into acting upon a spoofed pop-up message,
aka an "in-session phishing attack." NOTE: as of 20090116, the only
disclosure is a vague pre-advisory with no actionable information.
However, because it is from a well-known researcher, it is being
assigned a CVE identifier for tracking purposes.
