oval:org.mitre.oval:def:18367

Mozilla Firefox before 23.0 Firefox ESR 17.x before 17.0.8 Thunderbird before 17.0.8 Thunderbird ESR 17.x before 17.0.8 and SeaMonkey before 2.20 do not properly restrict local-filesystem access by Java applets which allows user-assisted remote attackers to read arbitrary files by leveraging a download to a fixed pathname or other predictable pathname.
