Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox before 1.5.0.7, Thunderbird before 1.5.0.7, and SeaMonkey before 1.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a JavaScript regular expression with a "minimal quantifier."

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
