Description

Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a browser applet could be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. This behavior could be used twice in succession to first load a privileged chrome: URL in a victim's browser, then load a malicious javascript: URL on top of the same document resulting in arbitrary script execution with chrome privileges.
