Description Josh Bressers 2009-07-16 09:58:15 EDT
Mozilla developers and community members identified and fixed several
stability bugs in the browser engine used in 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.

Martijn Wargers, Arno Renevier, Jesse Ruderman, Olli Pettay and Blake
Kaplan reported crashes in the Firefox 3 browser engine.

MITRE's CVE-2009-2462 entry:

The browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 and Thunderbird
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code
via vectors related to (1) the frame chain and synchronous events, (2)
a SetMayHaveFrame assertion and
nsCSSFrameConstructor::CreateFloatingLetterFrame, (3)
nsCSSFrameConstructor::ConstructFrame, (4) the child list and initial
reflow, (5) GetLastSpecialSibling, (6)
nsFrameManager::GetPrimaryFrameFor and MathML, (7)
nsFrame::GetBoxAscent, (8) nsCSSFrameConstructor::AdjustParentFrame,
(9) nsDOMOfflineResourceList, and (10)
