This issue has been resolved in ScreenOS 5.0, which was released last
In ScreenOS 4.0, if you are concerned with a malicious user using your
browser session to access the NetScreen web UI, you should quit the
browser application manually when you step away from your computer or
when you have finished using the web UI.
