Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:0436 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Critical: firefox security update 2009-04-22 01:42:27 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2009-04-17 15:26:27 UTC
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.
