Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 17:53:18 UTC
From MFSA 2008-40:
Mozilla developer Paul Nickerson reported a variant of a click-hijacking
vulnerability discovered in Internet Explorer by Liu Die Yu. The
vulnerability allowed an attacker to move the content window while the
mouse was being clicked, causing an item to be dragged rather than
clicked-on. This issue could potentially be used to force a user to
download a file or perform other drag-and-drop actions.
