Description

The crypto.generateCRMFRequest method in Mozilla Firefox before 28.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.25 does not properly validate a certain key type, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via vectors that trigger generation of a key that supports the Elliptic Curve ec-dual-use algorithm.
