a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information.
(CVE-2009-0354, CVE-2009-0355)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox treated HTTPOnly cookies. An
attacker able to execute arbitrary JavaScript on a target site using
HTTPOnly cookies may be able to use this flaw to steal the cookie.

A flaw was found in the way Firefox treated certain HTTP page caching
directives. A local attacker could steal the contents of sensitive
pages which the page author did not intend to be cached.
