Vulnerability CVE-2008-2809


Published: 2008-07-08   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Mozilla 1.9 M8 and earlier, Mozilla Firefox 2 before 2.0.0.15, SeaMonkey 1.1.5 and other versions before 1.1.10, Netscape 9.0, and other Mozilla-based web browsers, when a user accepts an SSL server certificate on the basis of the CN domain name in the DN field, regard the certificate as also accepted for all domain names in subjectAltName:dNSName fields, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into accepting an invalid certificate for a spoofed web site.
