Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 18:31:26 UTC
From MFSA 2008-44:
Mozilla developer Georgi Guninski reported that the restrictions imposed on
local HTML files could be bypassed using the resource: protocol. The
vulnerability allowed an attacker to read information about the system and
prompt the victim to save the information in a file.
