+ - Firefox flaw could let sites fake being "trust

Apparently, by exploiting a flaw in the way that Firefox manages data written to the browser's "location.hostname" DOM property, a site could manipulate the authentication cookies for trusted websites such as an online bank, thereby appearing trusted itself."
