Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2008-52
Title: Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206)
Announced: November 12, 2008
Reporter: Mozilla developers and community
Products: Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey
Fixed in: Firefox 3.0.4
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.
Jesse Ruderman, Martijn Wargers, and Gary Kwong reported crashes in the layout engine which affected Firefox 3 only. Daniel Veditz reported a crash in the browser engine which affected both Firefox 2 and Firefox 3.
- Layout engine crashes - Firefox 3 only
- Browser engine crash - Firefox 2 and 3
