Mozilla Vulnerable

Mozilla is partly vulnerable to the latest web browser security hole, as reported by Mozillazine.

Patch already exists. Should hopefully be in soon. I have a good feeling Mozilla will beat Microsoft to the fix. IIRC Microsoft is taking the month off from patches, while it figures out the whole update system.

    However, for fair information, Opera and Amaya browsers have allready beaten Moz and IE, by not having this URL spoofing problem. Opera even shows a pop-up warning window.

    It would be nice if this problem would lead to syntax-highlighting in the address bar (Bugzilla bug 184074),
    along the line as suggested by TimHunt:
    “… just a subtle indication of which part is the server name, which part is the path, and which part is the query-string …”
    “… use a really bright colour for the username/password bit, and suddenly phishing wouldn’t work any more.”
