Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2006-75 Title: RSS Feed-preview referrer leak Impact: Low Announced: December 19, 2006 Reporter: Jared Breland Products: Firefox 2.0 Fixed in: Firefox 2.0.0.1 Description Jared Breland reported on LEGROOM.net that when the new "Feed Preview" feature in Firefox 2.0 retrieves the icons of the installed web-based feed viewers it is potentially informing those services of your feed-browsing habits by sending the URL of the feed in a referrer header with each icon request. This was an oversight and has been fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.1 Workaround Upgrade to Firefox 2.0.0.1 References LEGROOM.net blog https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=358878 CVE-2006-6506
