Description


pdp has reported a vulnerability in Second Life, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose certain sensitive information.

The problem is that SecondLife registers the "secondlife://" URI handler and allows invoking SecondLife with arbitrary command line arguments. Using e.g. the "-autologin" and "-loginuri" parameters, it is possible to gain knowledge of e.g. a user's username and password hash by specifying a malicious server.

Successful exploitation requires that a user e.g. is tricked into visiting a malicious website.


Solution:
Do not browse untrusted websites.
