Description

Use-after-free vulnerability in the mozilla::DOMSVGLength::GetTearOff function in Mozilla Firefox before 32.0, Firefox ESR 31.x before 31.1, and Thunderbird 31.x before 31.1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via an SVG animation with DOM interaction that triggers incorrect cycle collection.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-31_1
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-32_0
