Description

The Alarm API in Mozilla Firefox before 33.0 and Firefox ESR 31.x before 31.2 does not properly restrict toJSON calls, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via crafted API calls that access sensitive information within the JSON data of an alarm.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-31_2
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-33_0
