Description

Mozilla Firefox 3.6 before 3.6.2 does not offer plugins the expected window.location protection mechanism, which might allow remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via vectors that are specific to each affected plugin.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_2
