Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 675090
CVE-2011-0055 Mozilla use-after-free error in JSON.stringify (MFSA2011-03)
Last modified: 2016-03-04 06:49:25 EST
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a
use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed
and subsequently dereferenced.
This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able
to store malicious code in the freed section of memory.
Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and
reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received.
This is now public:
This issue has been addressed in following products:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
