Description Josh Bressers 2009-01-29 20:52:06 UTC
Paul Nel reported that certain HTTP directives to not cache web pages,
Cache-Control: no-store and Cache-Control: no-cache for HTTPS pages, were
being ignored by Firefox 3. On a shared system, applications relying upon
these HTTP directives could potentially expose private data. Another user
on the system could use this vulnerability to view improperly cached pages
containing private data by navigating the browser back.
