Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-06-24 21:56:33 EDT
Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported that when a user examines the profiler output on a malicious website containing specially crafted code, it is possible for arbitrary code execution to occur. This occurs because the profiler user interface runs in a special iframe that parses data from the profiler to render the UI, leaving it susceptible to manipulation.

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Mariusz Mlynski as the original reporter.


This issue does not affect the version of firefox and thunderbird as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
