Description

Mozilla contributor moz_bug_r_a4 demonstrated that the addEventListener method could be used to inject script into another site in violation of the browser's same-origin policy. This could be used to access or modify private or valuable information from that other site.

Disable JavaScript until a fixed version can be installed.
