Description Josh Bressers 2010-09-03 15:56:38 UTC
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that XUL <tree> objects could be manipulated such that the
setting of certain properties on the object would trigger the removal of
the tree from the DOM and cause certain sections of deleted memory to be
accessed. An attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to crash a
victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer.
