CVE-2008-5019

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The session restore feature in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 and 2.x before 2.0.0.18 allows remote attackers to violate the same origin policy to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via unknown vectors.
