Description

The mozilla::layers::BufferTextureClient::AllocateForSurface function in Mozilla Firefox before 36.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write of zero values, and application crash) via vectors that trigger use of DrawTarget and the Cairo library for image drawing.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-36_0
