CVE-2009-0777

medium
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

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.7, Thunderbird before 2.0.0.21, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.15 decode invisible characters when they are displayed in the location bar, which causes an incorrect address to be displayed and makes it easier for remote attackers to spoof URLs and conduct phishing attacks.
