Browser responds to proxy auth request from non-proxy server (ssl/https)

Fixed in
  • Firefox 1
  • Mozilla Suite 1.7.5

Description

If a proxy is configured the browser would respond to a 407 proxy auth request from any SSL-connected server rather than only responding to the configured proxy server. This could leak NTLM or SPNEGO credentials outside the organization.

Workaround

Upgrade to the fixed version
