CVE-2009-1840

Published: 12 June 2009

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.11, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey do not check content policy before loading a script file into a XUL document, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted HTML document, as demonstrated by a "web bug" in an e-mail message, or web script or an advertisement in a web page.

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.
