Description Josh Bressers 2010-09-03 11:59:03 EDT
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that the implementation of XUL <tree>'s content view contains a
dangling pointer vulnerability. One of the content view's methods for
accessing the internal structure of the tree could be manipulated into
removing a node prior to accessing it, resulting in the accessing of
deleted memory. If an attacker can control the contents of the deleted
memory prior to its access they could use this vulnerability to run
arbitrary code on a victim's machine.
