Description

Can we assess if Firefox OS is affected by the 301 redirection attacks currently discussed in http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/10/29/new-vulnerability-found-in-apps-using-wi-fi/?_r=0 ? Turns out that iOS apps cache malicious "301 - Permanently Moved" HTTP redirects persistently under certain circumstances.
