Jesse Ruderman and Petko D. Petkov reported that the jar protocol
handler in Mozilla Firefox and Seamonkey does not properly check MIME
types (CVE-2007-5947). Gregory Fleischer reported that the
window.location property can be used to generate a fake HTTP Referer
(CVE-2007-5960). Multiple memory errors have also been reported
(CVE-2007-5959).

<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could possibly exploit these vulnerabilities to
execute arbitrary code in the context of the browser and conduct
Cross-Site-Scripting or Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
