Description

The TraceRecorder::traverseScopeChain function in js/src/jstracer.cpp in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.6 before 3.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving certain indirect calls to the JavaScript eval function.

Solution(s)
