Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox contain a flaw whereby chrome URLs can be made to load remote content. Successful exploitation requires the user to copy & paste a malicious URL into the browser, or drag & drop links from untrusted sources. This would result in execution of arbitrary code under the privileges of the browser process.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_5_0_5
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest
