    CLICKJACKING - CROSS-BROWSER THREAT FEAR GROWS

    CLICKJACKING - CROSS-BROWSER THREAT FEAR GROWS

    I received this bit of news a few minutes ago from Tectonic.
    Users of all major browsers are at risk from 'scary' online security threat that doesn't yet have a fix.

    A new threat on the Internet has all the major browser makers scrambling to find a fix.

    On Friday security agency US Cert issued a security notice warning that almost all browsers were affected by what is being called “clickjacking”.

    The notice warns that “clickjacking gives an attacker the ability to trick a user into clicking on something only barely or momentarily noticeable. Therefore, if a user clicks on a web page, they may actually be clicking on content from another page.

    Following the trail,
    Mozilla has released Firefox and Thunderbird v2.0.0.17 and Firefox v3.0.3 to address multiple vulnerabilities. These may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, obtain sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, cause a denial-of-service condition, operate with escalated privileges, or conduct Clickjacking attacks. Note that Firefox v3.0.2 was initially released to address these vulnerabilities. Version 3.0.3 was released to correct a flaw that was unrelated to the vulnerabilities.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
