IT APPEARS that the latest version of Internet Exploder has the same bug that is, er, bugging the Mozzarella Foundation’s Firefox.
Earlier this I said Firefox was victim to a bug that “steals” the login id and passwords of users.
According to Techtree, the geezer who found the Reverse Cross Site Request vulnerability in Firefox, Robert Chapin, has found the same bug in Explorer.
However, the attacks are likely to worry Firefox users more because its Password Manager automatically enters any saved passwords and user-ids into forms, whereas IE can’t fill in the saved information automatically.
According to Chapin, Firefox and IE users need to be aware that their information can be stolen in this way when visiting bogs and forum Web sites even at trusted addresses.
