Thread: Security problem with the openSUSE site register [says FF3]

    Exclamation Security problem with the openSUSE site register [says FF3]

    Firefox 3 errors are actually somewhat interesting:

    People click past these all the time.


    Fine, good to know.


    Here's the next screen after registration:



    Wikipedia says,

    'phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.'



    What's going on here? I was just about to enter my root password as my forum password [fortunately I'm not an idiot, AND my user password is same as root].

    However, any "phishers" attempting to swipe some user/root passwords from new openSUSE 11.0 users may just be able to do so, given the apparent security loophole on the official registration site.

    Can anyone duplicate?
