CVE-2008-5506

MEDIUM

Description

Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.5 and 2.x before 2.0.0.19, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.19, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.14 allows remote attackers to bypass the same origin policy by causing the browser to issue an XMLHttpRequest to an attacker-controlled resource that uses a 302 redirect to a resource in a different domain, then reading content from the response, aka "response disclosure."
