Improper Handling of Synthetic Events in Mozilla

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:100013

The browser user interface in Firefox before 1.0.5 Mozilla before 1.7.9 and Netscape 8.0.2 and 7.2 does not properly distinguish between user-generated events and untrusted synthetic events which makes it easier for remote attackers to perform dangerous actions that normally could only be performed manually by the user.
