Title: Browser responds to proxy auth request from non-proxy server (ssl/https)
Severity: High
Reporter: Christopher Nebergall
Products: Firefox, Mozilla Suite

Fixed in: Firefox 1.0
  Mozilla Suite 1.7.5


If a proxy is configured the browser would respond to a 407 proxy auth request from any SSL-connected server rather than only responding to the configured proxy server. This could leak NTLM or SPNEGO credentials outside the organization.


Upgrade to the fixed version
