Description

Mozilla Firefox before 2.0.0.15 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.10 allow remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via vectors involving (1) an event handler attached to an outer window, (2) a SCRIPT element in an unloaded document, or (3) the onreadystatechange handler in conjunction with an XMLHttpRequest.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-2_0_0_15
