Description Josh Bressers 2009-01-29 15:45:12 EST
Mozilla developer Georgi Guninski reported that certain chrome privileged
about: URLs could be loaded by opening them via .desktop shortcut files. If
an attacker could get a victim to download two files, a malicious HTML file
and a .desktop shortcut file, they could have the HTML document load a
privileged chrome document via the shortcut and both documents would be
treated as same origin. This vulnerability could potentially be used by an
attacker to inject arbitrary code into the chrome document and execute with
chrome privileges.
