Background

Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird an open-source email client, both from the Mozilla Project. The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as the ‘Mozilla Application Suite’.

Description

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page or email, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks, obtain sensitive information, spoof the address bar, conduct clickjacking attacks, bypass security restrictions and protection mechanisms, or have other unspecified impact.
