Description

The system is running a vulnerable version of the Mozilla browser. javascript; links dragged onto another frame or page allows an attacker to steal or modify sensitive information from other sites. The user could be convinced to drag obscurred links in the context of a game or even a fake scrollbar. If the user could be convinced to drag two links in sequence into a separate window (not frame) the attacker would be able to run arbitrary programs.
