competition at CanSecWest 2010.

Comment 8 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2010-06-23 09:09:17 EDT
The reason we stated we fixed this CVE even though it originally was stated as only affecting Firefox 3.6.x was due to the comment at
http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2010/mfsa2010-25.html

  Updated (June 22, 2010): Firefox 3.5, SeaMonkey 2.0, and Thunderbird 3.0 based 
  on earlier versions of the browser engine were patched just in case there is an 
  alternate way of triggering the underlying flaw.

We've left the impact as critical but changed the public= date to match the date that it was public that versions <3.6.x potentially could be affected.
