Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-04 04:04:31 EST
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs
in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based 
products. Some of these bugs 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.

Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Gary Kwong, Jeff Walden, 
Henry Sivonen, Martijn Wargers, David Baron and Marcia Knous 
reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5.
