CVE-2015-7203 CVE-2015-7220 CVE-2015-7221 Mozilla: Buffer overflows found through code inspection (MFSA 2015-144)
Last modified: 2015-12-16 04:05:24 EST
Security researcher Ronald Crane reported three buffer overflows affecting released code that were found through code inspection. They do not all have clear mechanisms to be exploited through web content but are vulnerable if a mechanism can be found to trigger them.
Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Ronald Crane as the original reporter.
This issue does not affect the version of firefox and thunderbird as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and 7.
