Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox do not properly reset its state information when opening new URLs. As a result, a malicious web page can define a function in the browser's global scope which can be used to launch a cross-site scripting attack against new sites the user browses to.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_3
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest
