Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 and 3.5 before 3.5.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a Flash object, a slow script dialog, and the unloading of the Flash plugin, which triggers attempted use of a deleted object.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_12
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_1
