CVE-2005-0590

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

The installation confirmation dialog in Firefox before 1.0.1, Thunderbird before 1.0.1, and Mozilla before 1.7.6 allows remote attackers to use InstallTrigger to spoof the hostname of the host performing the installation via a long "user:pass" sequence in the URL, which appears before the real hostname.
