Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-06-03 08:28:23 UTC
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs 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.

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.

This came through as well; adding it here due to the relation to CVE-2011-3101:

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2012-3105 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2012-3105
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-3105
Assigned: 20120605
Reference: http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2012/mfsa2012-34.html
Reference: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=744888

The glBufferData function in the WebGL implementation in Mozilla

5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey

NVIDIA driver, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via unknown vectors, a related issue to CVE-2011-3101.
