Vulnerability description

Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14, and other versions before 2.0.0.17, allows remote attackers to bypass cross-site scripting (XSS) protection mechanisms and conduct XSS attacks via HTML-escaped low surrogate characters that are ignored by the HTML parser, as demonstrated by a "jav?ascript" sequence, aka "HTML escaped low surrogates bug."
