Description

It has been reported that the properties set on an object passed to showModalDialog were readable by the document contained in the dialog, even when the document was from a different domain. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could result in a website running untrusted JavaScript if it assumed the dialogArguments could not be initialized by another site.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_8
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_18
