Description David Eisenstein 2006-06-08 02:57:34 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #193906 +++

Text stolen from MITRE:

Double-free vulnerability in Mozilla Thunderbird before and
SeaMonkey before 1.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VCard that
contains invalid base64 characters.

Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 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.

These issues also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3

Also this issue:

Double-free vulnerability in the getRawDER function for nsIX509Cert in
Firefox allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang)
and possibly execute arbitrary code via certain Javascript code.

These  also affects Firefox and Thunderbird, though in Thunderbird these bugs 
are likely not critical.  Normally javascript is turned off in Thunderbird, and
these vulnerabilities seem to be tied to having javascript turned on.

06.30.29 CVE:
Platform: Cross Platform
Title: Mozilla Firefox Javascript Navigator Object Remote Code
Description: Mozilla Firefox is prone to a remote code execution
vulnerability. The application fails to properly sanitize
user-supplied input  before using it to create a new Javascript
object. The vulnerability exists when assigning unspecified parameters
to the "window.navigator" object. An attacker may replace the
navigator object before Java starts to trigger this vulnerability.
Mozilla Firefox versions 1.5.0 to are vulnerable to this

06.30.30 CVE: CVE-2006-3113

Title: Mozilla Foundation Products XPCOM Memory Corruption
Description: Mozilla Foundation products Firefox, Thunderbird and

insufficient handling of simultaneous XPCOM events. See the referenced
advisory for further details.

Reporter, could you close this bug please now when Fedora Legacy was shutdown?
Or do you have any other idea what to do with it?

Matej, you are right.  This bug should be closed.

Closing CANTFIX.  -David
