Description Josh Bressers 2008-12-12 16:03:13 EST
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a series of
vulnerabilities in SessionStore by which content could be injected into an
incorrect document storage location, including storage locations for other
domains. An attacker could utilize these issues to violate the browser's
same-origin policy and perform an XSS attack while SessionStore data is
being restored.

moz_bug_r_a4 also reported that one particular SessionStore vulnerability
could be used by an attacker to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome
privileges.
