Title: Stored password corruption
Impact: Moderate
Announced: February 7, 2008
Reporter: Justin Dolske
Products: Firefox

Fixed in: Firefox


Mozilla developer Justin Dolske discovered that malicious sites, upon a user saving his or her password, could inject newlines into Firefox's password store and corrupt saved passwords for other sites.


Do not ask Firefox to save passwords on untrusted sites until a version containing these fixes can be installed.
