Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 546713
CVE-2009-3981 Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption
Last modified: 2013-04-12 17:52:21 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.
Jesse Ruderman reported a crash in the browser engine which only affected Firefox 3.
This issue has been addressed in following products:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
