Description

The mozilla::dom::AudioParamTimeline::AudioNodeInputValue function in the Web Audio API implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 35.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.32 does not properly restrict timeline operations, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized-memory read and application crash) via crafted API calls.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-35_0
