Remote code execution vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14 Thunderbird before 3.1.8 and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 through ParanoidFragmentSink protection mechanism

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:12532

The nsIScriptableUnescapeHTML.parseFragment method in the ParanoidFragmentSink protection mechanism in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14 Thunderbird before 3.1.8 and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 does not properly sanitize HTML in a chrome document which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via a javascript: URI in input to an extension as demonstrated by a javascript:alert sequence in (1) the HREF attribute of an A element or (2) the ACTION attribute of a FORM element.
