Description Josh Bressers 2008-03-24 14:26:41 EDT
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser
javascript engine used in versions of Firefox and other Mozilla-based products.
Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain
circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these
could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
