Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 17:33:34 UTC
From MFSA 2008-37:
Justin Schuh and Tom Cross of the IBM X-Force and Peter Williams of IBM
Watson Labs reported errors in Mozilla URL parsing routines. These errors
could be exploited using a specially crafted UTF-8 URL in a hyperlink which
could overflow a stack buffer and allow an attacker to execute arbitrary
code.
