CVE-2009-1838 (retired)

Priority
Description
The garbage-collection implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.11,
Thunderbird before 2.0.0.22, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.17 sets an element's
owner document to null in unspecified circumstances, which allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via a
crafted event handler, related to an incorrect context for this event
handler.
Notes
 jdstrand> CVEs in Firefox are tracked in the xulrunner source packages. The
  mapping of xulrunner sources to firefox is:
  xulrunner (1.8.0): firefox (1.5) - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
  xulrunner (1.8.1): firefox (2.0) - Ubuntu 6.10 - 8.04 LTS
  xulrunner-1.9: firefox-3.0
  xulrunner-1.9.1: firefox-3.5
 jdstrand: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 10.04 LTS uses the embedded xulrunner and not
  the system xulrunner-1.9.2, so it is tracked in the firefox source package.
