Description Vincent Danen 2010-02-24 23:45:24 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-0654 to
the following vulnerability:

Mozilla Firefox permits cross-origin loading of CSS stylesheets even when the stylesheet download has an incorrect MIME type and the stylesheet document is malformed, which allows remote HTTP servers to obtain sensitive information via a crafted document.

http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=9877


The above CVE description is a bit misleading.  They mention Firefox, but point to a Google Chrome bug report.  This issue affects Gecko-based browsers as well as WebKit-based browsers, with a more detailed writeup written by Chris Evans:

http://scarybeastsecurity.blogspot.com/2009/12/generic-cross-browser-cross-domain.html

and an upstream WebKit bug report (currently not public):

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29820

I imagine there must also be a corresponding Mozilla bug regarding this as Chris' blog post does indicate they have discussed this issue with Mozilla.
Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2010-02-25 00:02:05 EST
Ah, I see what happened here.  CVE-2010-0654 is assigned to Firefox, while CVE-2010-0651 is assigned to WebKit.  Presumably other browsers that fix this flaw will receive their own CVE names (i.e. IE and Opera, etc.).
Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2010-07-20 19:54:57 EDT
This has now been addressed upstream: http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2010/mfsa2010-46.html

Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that data can be read across domains by injecting bogus CSS selectors into a target site and then retrieving the data using JavaScript APIs. If an attacker can inject opening and closing portions of a CSS selector into points A and B of a target page, then the region between the two injection points becomes readable to JavaScript through, for example, the getComputedStyle() API.
