Description

Buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, on Windows allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a long string that triggers construction of a long text run.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_5_17
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_14
