Description Josh Bressers 2009-04-17 11:26:27 EDT
Security researcher Prateek Saxena reported that a malicious MozSearch
plugin could be created using a javascript: URI in the SearchForm value.
This URI is used as the default landing page when an empty search is
performed. If an attacker could get a user to install the malicious plugin
and perform an empty search, the SearchForm javascript: URI would be
executed within the context of the target site.
