Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2007-5960

Original release date: 11/26/2007
Last revised: 03/07/2011
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

Mozilla Firefox before 2.0.0.10 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.7 sets the Referer header to the window or frame in which script is running, instead of the address of the content that initiated the script, which allows remote attackers to spoof HTTP Referer headers and bypass Referer-based CSRF protection schemes by setting window.location and using a modal alert dialog that causes the wrong Referer to be sent.
