Description

It has been reported that the HTML parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space was available to process remaining input. Under such circumstances, memory occupied by in-use objects was freed and could later be filled with attacker-controlled text. These conditions could result in the execution or arbitrary code if methods on the freed objects were subsequently called.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_8
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_18
