Description

The SVG filter implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 28.0, Firefox ESR 24.x before 24.4, Thunderbird before 24.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.25 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive displacement-correlation information, and possibly bypass the Same Origin Policy and read text from a different domain, via a timing attack involving feDisplacementMap elements, a related issue to CVE-2013-1693.
