CVE-2006-4569

low
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 popup blocker in Mozilla Firefox before 1.5.0.7 opens the "blocked popups" display in the context of the Location bar instead of the subframe from which the popup originated, which might make it easier for remote user-assisted attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
