CVE-2006-2779 multiple firefox DoS issues (CVE-2006-2780)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
Text taken from the CVE id:
Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 188.8.131.52 allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via (1) nested <option> tags in a select tag, (2) a
DOMNodeRemoved mutation event, (3) "Content-implemented tree views,"
(4) BoxObjects, (5) the XBL implementation, (6) an iframe that
attempts to remove itself, which leads to memory corruption.

This is a dupe of bug #193906, yeah? (Technically that one was filed an hour
later, but contains more information, unless I'm overlooking something.)
(Well, except this one is for RHEL4.)
Integer overflow in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 184.108.40.206 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via "jsstr tagify," which leads to memory corruption.
