CVE-2009-0355

Published: 04 February 2009

components/sessionstore/src/nsSessionStore.js in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.6 does not block changes of INPUT elements to type="file" during tab restoration, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to read arbitrary files on a client machine via a crafted INPUT element.

CVEs in Firefox are tracked in the xulrunner source packages. The
mapping of xulrunner sources to firefox is:
xulrunner (1.8.0): firefox (1.5) - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
xulrunner (1.8.1): firefox (2.0) - Ubuntu 6.10 - 8.04 LTS
xulrunner-1.9: firefox-3.0
xulrunner-1.9.1: firefox-3.5
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 10.04 LTS uses the embedded xulrunner and not
the system xulrunner-1.9.2, so it is tracked in the firefox source package.
