Description

The jar protocol handler in Mozilla Firefox before 2.0.0.10 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.7 does not update the origin domain when retrieving the inner URL parameter yields an HTTP redirect, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a jar: URI, a different vulnerability than CVE-2007-5947.
