Re: Password Flaw also in Firefox 1.5.08. Was: Big Flaw in Firefox 2: Password Manager Bug Exposes Passwords Nov 23 2006 06:23PM

Netscape Browser version 8.1.2 is confirmed as affected too.
Vendor was contacted on 23th november, 2006.

When visiting the PoC address the following URL (Chapin Information Services - Google Search) was generated:
http://www.google.com/search?q=Chapin+Information+Services&loginuser=tes
tuser&loginpass=pass&x=467&y=642
listing the Username 'testuser' and Password 'pass' as part of URL too.

It is required that user will accept the Save New Passcard window with 'OK' and option Fill & Submit when visiting the site again.

Workaround:
Use "Never save login information for this site" option.

Password Manager is known as Passcard Manager in Netscape.
