Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.1, 1.5.x before 1.5.0.9, Thunderbird before 1.5.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 1.0.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by setting the CSS cursor to certain images that cause an incorrect size calculation when converting to a Windows bitmap.

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.
