Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox contain a flaw in the conversion of cursor images to windows bitmap formats when used with the CSS cursor tag due to a size miscalculation. CSS documents are typically used in conjunction with HTML web pages to enhance browsing experience. An attacker could construct a specially-crafted image file which could be used to execute arbitrary code.
