Mozilla Firefox for Android < 29.0 Addressbar/Phishing



The remote Android host was detected using an outdated version of Mozilla Firefox.


Versions of Mozilla Firefox older than 29.0 contain a flaw wherein the addressbar can be suppressed from exposure when it has scrolled off screen, via the use of script interacting with DOM events. This can be leveraged by an attacker to display a fake addressbar to the user, which could be used for phishing attacks.


Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox 29.0 for Android (or later) from the Google Play app store.
