496263: CVE-2009-1307 Firefox Same-origin violations when Adobe Flash loaded via view-source: protocol

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The view-source: URI implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.9, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey does not properly implement the Same Origin Policy, which allows remote attackers to (1) bypass crossdomain.xml restrictions and connect to arbitrary web sites via a Flash file; (2) read, create, or modify Local Shared Objects via a Flash file; or (3) bypass unspecified restrictions and render content via vectors involving a jar: URI.
