Andreas Sandblad has discovered a vulnerability in the Mozilla browser, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to a race condition, making it possible for script code in the previous web page to be executed in context of the new page while it is being loaded. This can be exploited via a specially crafted HTML document containing multiple event handlers.
Solution: The vulnerability has been fixed in version 1.6b and will also be addressed in version 1.4.2.
