CAN-2005-0255 Memory overwrite in string library
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:16 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #149876 +++
Daniel de Wildt discovered a memory handling flaw in Mozilla string classes that
could overwrite memory at a fixed location if reallocation fails during string
growth. This could theoretically lead to arbitrary code execution.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
