Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14, and 3.5.x before 3.5.3, does not properly manage pointers for the columns (aka TreeColumns) of a XUL tree element, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document, related to a "dangling pointer vulnerability."

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_14
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_3
