Description: OSX 10.4 Dashboard Permits Hijacking of Authenticated Credentials

This issue is known since 2005-05-09 and OSVDB had an entry already:

This URL is for the widget injection issue, not the authenticated credentials hijacking issue. I already mentioned the Safari issue was known about.

Versions Affected:
OSX 10.4.0
OSX 10.4.1

10.4.1 doesn't seem to be vulnerable. Could you please show how do you exploit this when the option in Safari is turned on?

widget.system("sudo id >> /tmp/out", null);
