CVE 2008-1240

LiveConnect in Mozilla Firefox before 2.0.0.13 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.9 does not properly parse the content origin for jar: URIs before sending them to the Java plugin, which allows remote attackers to access arbitrary ports on the local machine. NOTE: this is closely related to CVE-2008-1195.
