Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.20, SeaMonkey 2.x, Thunderbird 3.x before 3.1.12, and possibly other products does not properly handle the dropping of a tab element, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges by establishing a content area and registering for drop events.
