Description Josh Bressers 2005-02-28 17:49:49 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #149876 +++

Daniel de Wildt discovered a memory handling flaw in Mozilla string classes that
could overwrite memory at a fixed location if reallocation fails during string
growth. This could theoretically lead to arbitrary code execution.

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2005-04-28 20:35:01 UTC
