1060940: CVE-2014-1479 Mozilla: Clone protected content with XBL scopes (MFSA 2014-02)

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The System Only Wrapper (SOW) implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 27.0, Firefox ESR 24.x before 24.3, Thunderbird before 24.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.24 does not prevent certain cloning operations, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended restrictions on XUL content via vectors involving XBL content scopes.
