Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-08-07 01:21:40 EDT
Security researcher Nils used the Address Sanitizer to discover a use-after-free problem when generating a Certificate Request Message Format (CRMF) request with certain parameters. This causes a potentially exploitable crash.

In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts in those products.
