Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2014-02-04 01:51:32 UTC
Fredrik "Flonka" Lönnqvist discovered an issue with image decoding in RasterImage caused by continued use of discarded images. This could allow for the writing to unowned memory and a potentially exploitable crash.

In general this flaw cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and Seamonkey products because scripting is disabled in mail, but is potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
