Description

toolkit/components/passwordmgr/src/nsLoginManagerPrompter.js in the asynchronous Authorization Prompt implementation in Mozilla Firefox 3.6 before 3.6.2 does not properly handle concurrent authorization requests from multiple web sites, which might allow remote web servers to spoof an authorization dialog and capture credentials by demanding HTTP authentication in opportunistic circumstances.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_2

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.
