Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a user's form history, both from web content as well as the smart location bar, was vulnerable to theft. A malicious web page could synthesize events such as mouse focus and key presses on behalf of the victim and trick the browser into auto-filling the form fields with history entries and then reading the entries.
