Mozilla Firefox popup blocker cross-site scripting
|firefox-popup-blocker-xss (28957)||Medium Risk|
Mozilla Firefox is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation by the popup blocker. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a blocked popup icon to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
