The cert_TestHostName function in Mozilla before 1.7, Firefox before 0.9, and Thunderbird before 0.7, only checks the hostname portion of a certificate when the hostname portion of the URI is not a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), which allows remote attackers to spoof trusted certificates.

Name Vendor Start Version End Version
Firefox Mozilla * 0.9
Mozilla Mozilla * 1.7
Thunderbird Mozilla * 0.7
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 RedHat galeon *
