Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 5, Thunderbird before 6.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.3 do not properly handle "location" as the name of a frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted web site, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0170.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_23
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-6_0
