CVE-2005-0593

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 before 1.0.1 and Mozilla before 1.7.6 allows remote attackers to spoof the SSL "secure site" lock icon via (1) a web site that does not finish loading, which shows the lock of the previous site, (2) a non-HTTP server that uses SSL, which causes the lock to be displayed when the SSL handshake is completed, or (3) a URL that generates an HTTP 204 error, which updates the icon and location information but does not change the display of the original site.
