Disclosure Date


Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to spoof SSL certification. The issue is triggered when using "onunload" inside a < body> tag and redirection using http-equiv refresh metatag, document.write() and document.close(), which will spoof a trusted website. By sending a specially crafted webpage, a remote attacker can represent the malicious Web site as that of a trusted site, resulting in a loss of integrity.
