Following security problems were fixed:
- MFSA 2007-37 / CVE-2007-5947: The jar protocol handler in Mozilla Firefox retrieves the inner URL regardless of its MIME type, and considers HTML documents within a jar archive to have the same origin as the inner URL, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a jar: URI.
- MFSA 2007-38 / CVE-2007-5959: The Firefox 18.104.22.168 update contains fixes for three bugs that improve the stability of the product. These crashes showed some evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
- MFSA 2007-39 / CVE-2007-5960: Gregory Fleischer demonstrated that it was possible to generate a fake HTTP Referer header by exploiting a timing condition when setting the window.location property. This could be used to conduct a Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that rely only on the Referer header as protection against such attacks.
