Vulnerability Description

Google Toolbar contains a flaw that allows a cross domain scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate URI input upon submission to the browser. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and arbitrary IE domain, leading to a loss of integrity.

Solution Description

Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue.
