CVE-2009-1307

Published: 22 April 2009

The view-source: URI implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.9, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey does not properly implement the Same Origin Policy, which allows remote attackers to (1) bypass crossdomain.xml restrictions and connect to arbitrary web sites via a Flash file; (2) read, create, or modify Local Shared Objects via a Flash file; or (3) bypass unspecified restrictions and render content via vectors involving a jar: URI.

Notes

AuthorNote

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.
