Flock browser RSS feed cross-site scripting
|flock-rss-xss (61820)||Medium Risk|
The Flock browser could allow a remote attacker to bypass cross-domain security restrictions and execute arbitrary script on a victim's system, caused by the improper validation of user-supplied input when processing RSS feeds. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site containing a malicious RSS feed, a remote attacker could bypass same-origin policy restrictions and execute script in the context of another domain. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to possibly perform cross-site scripting attacks and launch further attacks on the vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of Flock (22.214.171.12414 or later), available from the Flock Web site. See References.
