Multiple Web Browser Spoofing Vulnerabilities

Unread postby 'KotaGuy » May 17th, 2005, 2:43 pm

"Multiple Web browsers are reported prone to vulnerabilities that surround the handling of International Domain Names.

The vulnerabilities exist due to inconsistencies in how International Domain Names are processed. Reports indicate that this inconsistency can be leveraged to spoof address bar, status-bar, and SSL certificate values.

These vulnerabilities may be exploited by a remote attacker to aid in phishing style attacks. This may result in the voluntary disclosure of sensitive information to a malicious website due to a false sense of trust.

Although these vulnerabilities are reported to affect Web browsers, mail clients that depend on the Web browser to generate HTML code may also be affected."
