Description Josh Bressers 2008-03-24 14:19:40 EDT
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser
engine used in versions of Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of
these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances
and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited
to run arbitrary code.
