Description :

When a popup is blocked the user is given the ability to open that
popup through the popup-blocking status bar icon and, in Firefox,
through the information bar. Doron Rosenberg noticed that popups
which are permitted by the user were executed with elevated
rights, which could be abused to automatically install and execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the user. (CVE-2005-1153)

It was discovered that the browser did not start with a clean global
JavaScript state for each new website. This permited a malicious web
page to define a global variable known to be used by a different site,
permiting malicious code to be executed in the context of that site
(for example, sending web mail or automatic purchasing).

Michael Krax discovered a flaw in the "favicon" links handler. A
malicious web page could define a favicon link tag as JavaScript,
which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the rights
of the user. (CVE-2005-1155)

Michael Krax found two flaws in the Search
