Description Josh Bressers 2008-11-10 19:25:35 UTC
Justin Schuh of the IBM X-Force reported a flaw in the way Mozilla parses
the http-index-format MIME type. By sending a specially crafted 200 header
line in the HTTP index response, an attacker can cause the browser to crash
and run arbitrary code on the victim's computer.
