Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-05-13 22:18:45 EDT
Mozilla community member Ms2ger discovered that some DOMSVGZoomEvent functions are used without being properly initialized, causing unitialized memory to be used when they are called. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash.

In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
