Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.16 and 3.6.x before 3.6.13 and SeaMonkey before 2.0.11 does not properly handle certain redirections involving data: URLs and Java LiveConnect scripts which allows remote attackers to start processes read arbitrary local files and establish network connections via vectors involving a refresh value in the http-equiv attribute of a META element which causes the wrong security principal to be used.
