Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 does not always use XPCCrossOriginWrapper when required during object construction, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted document, related to a "cross origin wrapper bypass."

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_12
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5
