Description Josh Bressers 2009-07-16 14:30:54 UTC
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a series of
vulnerabilities in which objects that normally receive a
XPCCrossOriginWrapper are constructed without the wrapper. This can lead to
cases where JavaScript from one website may unsafely access properties of
such an object which had been set by a different website. A malicious
website could use this vulnerability to launch a XSS attack and run
arbitrary JavaScript within the context of another site.

Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-07-22 18:58:06 UTC
MITRE's CVE-2009-2472 entry:

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 does not always use
XPCCrossOriginWrapper when required during object construction, which
allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and conduct
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted document, related to
a "cross origin wrapper bypass."
