Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:1674 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Critical: firefox security update 2009-12-16 05:03:54 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2009-12-11 19:44:45 UTC
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.
