Description Josh Bressers 2009-07-16 10:14:13 EDT
Mozilla developers and community members 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.

Peter Van der Beken, Mike Shaver, Jesse Ruderman, Jeff Walden and Carsten
Book reported crashes in the Firefox 3 JavaScript engine.
