Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 17:48:39 UTC
From MFSA 2008-39:
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a series of
vulnerabilities in feedWriter which allow scripts from page content to run
with chrome privileges.

This flaw does not affect us.  It only affects Firefox 2, but not SeaMonkey (as
the feature does not exist in the version of SeaMonkey we ship).
