Description Josh Bressers 2009-03-03 11:50:15 EST
Mozilla contributor Masahiro Yamada reported that certain invisible control
characters were being decoded when displayed in the location bar, resulting
in fewer visible characters than were present in the actual location. An
attacker could use this vulnerability to spoof the location bar and display
a misleading URL for their malicious web page.
