CVE-2005-0230

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Firefox 1.0 does not prevent the user from dragging an executable file to the desktop when it has an image/gif content type but has a dangerous extension such as .bat or .exe, which allows remote attackers to bypass the intended restriction and execute arbitrary commands via malformed GIF files that can still be parsed by the Windows batch file parser, aka "firedragging."
