Description

Mozilla developer Christoph Kerschbaumer discovered an issue while investigating Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2015-03, previously reported by security researcher Muneaki Nishimura. This flaw was that a cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) request should not follow 30x redirections after preflight according to the specification.
