FreeBSD : Mutiple browser frame injection vulnerability (641859e8-eca1-11d8-b913-000c41e2cdad)
High Nessus Plugin ID 56476
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionA class of bugs affecting many web browsers in the same way was discovered. A Secunia advisory reports :
The problem is that the browsers don't check if a target frame belongs to a website containing a malicious link, which therefore doesn't prevent one browser window from loading content in a named frame in another window.
Successful exploitation allows a malicious website to load arbitrary content in an arbitrary frame in another browser window owned by e.g.
a trusted site.
A KDE Security Advisory reports :
A malicious website could abuse Konqueror to insert its own frames into the page of an otherwise trusted website. As a result the user may unknowingly send confidential information intended for the trusted website to the malicious website.
