Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-02-21 05:16:01 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-0652 to
the following vulnerability:

Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6 does not properly prevent the literal rendering
of homoglyph characters in IDN domain names, which allows remote
attackers to spoof URLs and conduct phishing attacks, as demonstrated
by homoglyphs of the / (slash) and ? (question mark) characters in a
subdomain of a .cn domain name, a different vulnerability than
CVE-2005-0233.
