Description Tomas Hoger 2008-05-26 05:25:34 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-2419 to the following vulnerability:

Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (heap corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code by triggering an error condition during certain Iframe
operations between a JSframe write and a JSframe close, as
demonstrated by an error in loading an empty Java applet defined by a
'src="javascript:"' sequence.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2010-04-08 17:45:54 EDT
It is possible that this could affect Seamonkey 1.1.x, however there is no further information available on this issue, and it looks like it may only affect Windows.  It also looks as though this issue may be more related to the java interpreter than to firefox itself.  Regardless, upstream is unable to reproduce or determine this to be security significant in firefox itself.
