Description

Mozilla Firefox 1.5 before 1.5.0.5, Thunderbird before 1.5.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 1.0.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via simultaneous XPCOM events, which causes a timer object to be deleted in a way that triggers memory corruption.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_5_0_5
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
