Disclosure Date


LedgerSMB contains a flaw related to HTTP credential clearing. The issue is due to the program setting credentials to known bad values (e.g. logout:logout), which will cause Mozilla Firefox and other unspecified browser to re-use credentials until a 401 error or a request to use different credentials is received. This could allow an attacker with browser access to use the 'back' button on other browsers that don't support a purely client-side logout, to access information from a logged out session until the browser is closed.
