Description

The Web Notification API in Mozilla Firefox before 29.0, Firefox ESR 24.x before 24.5, Thunderbird before 24.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.26 allows remote attackers to bypass intended source-component restrictions and execute arbitrary JavaScript code in a privileged context via a crafted web page for which Notification.permission is granted.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-24_5
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-29_0
