Description Josh Bressers 2010-09-03 15:51:43 UTC
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that there was a remaining dangling pointer issue leftover from
the fix to CVE-2010-2753. Under certain circumstances one of the pointers
held by a XUL tree selection could be freed and then later reused,
potentially resulting in the execution of attacker-controlled memory.
