Description

Mozilla Firefox before 2.0.0.12 does not always display a web forgery warning dialog if the entire contents of a web page are in a DIV tag that uses absolute positioning, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct phishing attacks.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-2_0_0_12
