 Christey> http://www.codetalker.com/advisories/vendor/hp/hpsbux9707-065.html

 Christey> According to the CERT advisory, this issue affects Internet
 Christey> Explorer 3.x and 4.x, and Netscape 2.x, 3.x, and 4.x.
 Christey> Include this in the description.
 Levy> Need a better description of the vulnerability there were several JS
 Levy> vulnerabilities in the same time frame that had similar results but
 Levy> were porly documented. This, the Bell Labs vulnerability, was one of them.
 Levy> This is one of the other ones:
 Levy> http://www.securityfocus.com/templates/archive.pike?list=1&msg=c%3dDE%25a%3dDBP%25p%3dSCN%25l%3dMCHH9EEA-970711140700Z-21724@de-mch-he01a.exchange.pn.siemens.de
 Wall> Add Internet Explorer 5 also.  See
 Wall> http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms99-043.asp which allows
 Wall> JavaScript to read files on other computers.
 Christey> MS:MS99-043 is already handled by CVE-1999-0793.  This one is
 Christey> different because IE 3.x and 4.x are affected; for
 Christey> CVE-1999-0793, it affected 4.x and 5.x.  Also, this one
 Christey> just allows someone to read cookies, HTML form data, and
 Christey> what URLs were visited.  CVE-1999-0793 allows the attacker
 Christey> to read files on the target's computer.  Thus this one is
 Christey> different than CVE-1999-0793, and MS:MS99-043 should not be
 Christey> added.
 Christey>
 Christey> The reference that Elias provided describes 2 bugs, neither
 Christey> of which is the "Bell Labs" bug, i.e. this candidate (just to
 Christey> confirm what Elias said; the CERT advisory explicitly thanks
 Christey> Bell Labs). The first bug *sounds* a lot like this candidate, but
 Christey> didn't need Javascript.  Refer to this as the "Danish bug"
 Christey> since it was "discovered by a Danish IS consultant company."
 Christey>
 Christey> The second bug describes the same symptoms as CVE-1999-0793.
 Christey> However, this reference only describes the problem for
 Christey> Netscape Nagivator; CVE-1999-0793 only mentions IE.
 Christey> Thus it's possible that the problem was identified and fixed
 Christey> for Netscape, and later "rediscovered" by Microsoft and
 Christey> addressed for Internet Explorer.  (The CD:DISCOVERY-DATE content
 Christey> decision, when reviewed by the Board, will dictate what to
 Christey> do in these sorts of cases).  But then again, they could be
 Christey> different bugs entirely, but they just happen to have the same
 Christey> symptoms.  If the bug is more in the Javascript model than in
 Christey> the implementation, then maybe CD:SF-CODEBASE won't apply.
 Christey> We might be able to roll this second bug in with
 Christey> CVE-1999-0793; thus we may need to REASSESS CVE-1999-0793 in
 Christey> the future.
 Christey>
 Christey> It is possible that this second bug is the same as the
 Christey> "Singapore privacy bug" described here:
 Christey> http://www.securityfocus.com/templates/archive.pike?list=1&date=1997-07-28&msg=Pine.SUN.3.94.970728112219.25473B-100000@dfw.dfw.net

 Christey>
 Christey> These posts were on July 22 and 28.  Singapore is dated after
 Christey> the initial CERT advisory and references LiveConnect, which
 Christey> "enables communication between JavaScript and Java applets."
 Christey> Kuo Chiang, the person referenced in the above posts as the
 Christey> discovered, sent a followup a week later on August 1:
 Christey>
 Christey> http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=bugtraq&m=87602746719458&w=2
 Christey> But this is merely a clarification of the earlier problem, as
 Christey> his post includes a reference to a ZDNet article written
 Christey> on July 25.
 Christey>
 Christey> The poster referred to by Elias, Matthias Dominick, sent a
 Christey> followup to the CERT advisory saying that the Danish bug
 Christey> appeared to be fixed, but the Bell Labs bug wasn't.
 Christey>
 Christey> http://www.securityfocus.com/templates/archive.pike?list=1&date=1997-07-8&msg=c%3dDE%25a%3dDBP%25p%3dSCN%25l%3dMCHH9EEA-970710145437Z-20375@de-mch-he01a.exchange.pn.siemens.de
 Christey>
 Christey> Two legacy candidates will eventually be created to handle
 Christey> these 2 other bugs, i.e. Singapore and Danish.
 Christey>
 Christey> In the meantime, the description for this one can be extended
 Christey> to mention the Bell Labs bug and include pointers back to some
 Christey> of the related posts.
 Christey>
 Christey> If this mess isn't an argument for a naming standard, I don't
 Christey> know what is :-) :-)  On a more serious note, this is an
 Christey> indicator of why it may be important for CVE to provide a way
 Christey> of distinguishing between different bugs discovered in the
 Christey> same software at around the same time (CD:SF-LOC will address this,
