Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:1095 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Critical: firefox security update 2009-06-11 22:45:59 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2009-06-01 19:15:34 UTC
Security researchers Adam Barth and Collin Jackson reported that when a
file: resource is loaded via the location bar it inherits the principal of
the previously loaded document. This vulnerability can potentially give the
newly loaded document additional privileges to access resources that it
wouldn't otherwise have, including resources in the document's parent
folder.
