Description Josh Bressers 2009-03-03 11:13:40 EST
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the
browser engine used in 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.

Martijn Wargers, Jesse Ruderman, and Josh Soref reported crashes in the
layout engine which affected Firefox 3 only. Firefox 2 releases were not
affected.
