Description Josh Bressers 2006-04-12 23:37:18 EDT
Table Rebuilding Code Execution Vulnerability


TippingPoint  and  the Zero Day Initiative reports that an invalid and
non-sensical ordering of table-related tags causes Mozilla to use a negative
array index. This invalid memory use can be exploited to run code of the
attacker's choice.

Workaround

Upgrade to fixed version.

Although JavaScript is not involved in the vulnerability itself, disabling
JavaScript may prevent an attacker from effectively preparing memory in
order to carry out the exploit.
