Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2008-60
Title: Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199)
Announced: December 16, 2008
Reporter: Mozilla developers
Products: Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey
Fixed in: Firefox 3.0.5
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.
Daniel Veditz, and Jesse Ruderman reported crashes in the layout engine which affected both Firefox 2 and Firefox 3. David Baron reported a crash in the layout engine which only affected Firefox 2 as well as a crash in the layout engine which only affected Firefox 3.
- Layout engine crashes - Firefox 2 and 3
- Layout engine crash - Firefox 3 only
