Description Josh Bressers 2009-04-17 14:41:33 UTC
Mozilla developers 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.

Igor Bukanov, and Bob Clary reported crashes in the JavaScript engine which
affected Firefox 3 only.
