Description

The implementation of digital signatures for JAR files in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 5 does not prevent calls from unsigned JavaScript code to signed code, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and gain privileges via a crafted web site, a different vulnerability than CVE-2008-2801.
