Multiple Mozilla - Firefox flaws expose personal data
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/18/2005 11:49:00 PM.

Multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to install malicious code or steal personal data have been discovered in the Mozilla Suite and the Firefox open source browser. Details of the nine vulnerabilities were published on Mozilla's security Web site over the weekend. The FrSIRT advisory said: "When a popup is blocked the user is given the ability to open that one popup… If the popup URL were java script: selecting ‘Show java script:...' from the infobar or popup blocking status bar icon menus would run the javascript with elevated privileges, which could be used to install malicious software".

Another of the Firefox flaws can be exploited when a user visits a Web page that requires a plug-in that has not already been installed. The FrSIRT advisory claims that if the browser's Plugin Finder Service is used to automatically find an appropriate plugin, the ‘manual install' function can be used to "launch arbitrary code capable of stealing local data or installing malicious code". All versions of Mozilla Suite prior to version 1.7.7 and all versions of Firefox prior to 1.0.3 are vulnerable.
