Description

Firefox before 1.0.1 and Mozilla before 1.7.6, when displaying the HTTP Authentication dialog, do not change the focus to the tab that generated the prompt, which could facilitate spoofing and phishing attacks.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_1
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
