Description

The browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.9, Thunderbird before 2.0.0.22, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.16 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly trigger memory corruption via vectors related to (1) nsAsyncInstantiateEvent::Run, (2) nsStyleContext::Destroy, (3) nsComputedDOMStyle::GetWidth, (4) the xslt_attributeset_ImportSameName.html test case for the XSLT stylesheet compiler, (5) nsXULDocument::SynchronizeBroadcastListener, (6) IsBindingAncestor, (7) PL_DHashTableOperate and nsEditor::EndUpdateViewBatch, and (8) gfxSkipCharsIterator::SetOffsets, and other vectors.
