Description

Mozilla Firefox before 24.0, Firefox ESR 17.x before 17.0.9, Thunderbird before 24.0, Thunderbird ESR 17.x before 17.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 2.21 do not ensure that initialization occurs for JavaScript objects with compartments, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by leveraging incorrect scope handling.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-17_0_9
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-24_0
