Description Josh Bressers 2009-09-07 14:06:46 EDT
An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative,
reported that the columns of a XUL tree element could be manipulated in a
particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to
freed memory. An attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to crash
a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on the victim's computer.
