Description

The SVGTextElement.getCharNumAtPosition function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.20, and 4.x through 5, does not properly handle SVG text, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that lead to a "dangling pointer."

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_6_20
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-6_0
