Description

Mozilla Firefox before 37.0, Firefox ESR 31.x before 31.6, and Thunderbird before 31.6 do not properly restrict resource: URLs, which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges by leveraging the ability to bypass the Same Origin Policy, as demonstrated by the resource: URL associated with PDF.js.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-mail-client-thunderbird
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-mail-client-thunderbird-bin
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-client-firefox
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-client-firefox-bin
