CVE-2005-0230

MEDIUM

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."
