Description Josh Bressers 2006-01-27 21:07:39 UTC
javascript unrooted access

The javascript interpreter in Firefox can be tricked into storing
arbitary code onto the heap, then jump into that code.  This is the
result of tricking the garbage collector into dereferencing objects
that are still in use.


This issue also affects RHEL3
This issue also affects RHEL2.1
