Description

The importScripts Web Worker method in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.11 and 3.6.x before 3.6.7 does not verify that content is valid JavaScript code, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and obtain sensitive information via a crafted HTML document.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_7
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_11
