CVE-2005-0593 - Stupendous White


Firefox before 1.0.1 and Mozilla before 1.7.6 allows remote attackers to spoof the SSL \secure site\ lock icon via (1) a web site that does not finish loading which shows the lock of the previous site (2) a non-HTTP server that uses SSL which causes the lock to be displayed when the SSL handshake is completed or (3) a URL that generates an HTTP 204 error which updates the icon and location information but does not change the display of the original site.
