Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2009-03-25 23:55:13 EDT
A memory corruption flaw was discovered in how Mozilla Firefox handles XML files containing an XSLT transform.  A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash Firefox or, potentially, execute arbitary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox.

A proof-of-concept was made public earlier today: http://milw0rm.com/exploits/8285
