New security flaw discovered in Internet Explorer and Firefox
June 8, 2006
A new security flaw has been discovered in Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla's Firefox browsers. Both are vulnerable to a new Java Script security hole that could allow attackers to rob sensitive information. According to a posting on the Full Disclosure security mailing list, the security flaw affects patched browsers on Windows, Linux and the Mac operating system.
Security experts noted that exploiting the flaw would require the user to type a fair amount of text. Attackers would therefore most likely target online games or blogs.
Security website Secunia rated the flaw 'less critical' for Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Although the flaw requires a sophisticated attacker to effectively exploit it, it is noteworthy because it spans multiple operating systems and browser vendors.
