Description

Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 do not consider the presence of same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) during the cross-compartment wrapping of objects, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended XBL access restrictions via crafted content.
