Description Josh Bressers 2008-11-10 20:06:33 UTC
Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1 through 3.0.3 on Windows does not properly identify the context of Windows .url shortcut files, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and obtain sensitive information via an HTML document that is directly accessible through a filesystem, as demonstrated by documents in (1) local folders, (2) Windows share folders, and (3) RAR archives, and as demonstrated by IFRAMEs referencing shortcuts that point to (a) about:cache?device=memory and (b) about:cache?device=disk, a variant of CVE-2008-2810.

Current Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides Firefox 3.0.19 so would not be vulnerable to this, excluding the fact this affects Windows only.
