Advisory: Carefully timed reloads and redirects can spoof the address field


CVE-ID: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-1928


UPDATE Link: http://www.opera.com/fr/security/advisory/1014


Announced: March 26, 2012
Reporter: Security researcher Jordi Chancel
Impact: Low
Products: Opera
Fixed in: Opera 11.62


Description

The address field should always show the address of the page that is being displayed. In certain cases, if a target site responds slowly, reloading an attacking page and redirecting to the target page can cause the address field to show the target site’s address, while the attacking site is still being displayed.

Opera’s Response

Opera Software has released Opera 11.62, where this issue has been fixed.
