Description Josh Bressers 2009-12-11 14:44:45 EST
Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported an issue similar to one fixed in mfsa2009-44 in which a web page can set document.location to a URL that can't be displayed properly and then inject content into the resulting blank page. An attacker could use this vulnerability to place a legitimate-looking but invalid URL in the location bar and inject HTML and JavaScript into the body of the page, resulting in a spoofing attack.
