Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 14:22:52 EDT
From MFSA 2008-43:
Security researcher Gareth Heyes reported an issue with the HTML parser in
which the parser ignored certain low surrogate characters if they were
HTML-escaped. This issue could potentially be used to bypass naive script
filtering and used in an XSS attack. This issue only affected Firefox 2.
