Description

Integer overflow in Apple CoreGraphics, as used in Safari before 4.0.3, Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12, and Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5.8, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long text run that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow during font glyph rendering, a related issue to CVE-2009-1194.
