DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox,
Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey, which can be exploited by malicious
people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, bypass certain
security restrictions, disclose certain sensitive information, and
compromise a user's system.

1) A use-after-free error exists within shlwapi.dll when closing a
child window that uses the file open dialog.

2) An error when handling certain drag and drop actions can be
exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

3) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsSMILTimeValueSpec::ConvertBetweenTimeContainers()" function when
handling certain SVG animation.

4) An out-of-bounds read error in SVG filters can be exploited to
disclose certain data.

5) An error when handling Content Security Policy headers can be
exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

6) An error when handling "javascript:" home page can be exploited to
execute script code in "about:sessionrestore" context.

7) An unspecified error exists when accessing a keyframe's cssText
after dynamic modification.

8) The window.fullScreen property does not properly enforce the
mozRequestFullscreen policy, which can be exploited to bypass the
policy and spoof certain content.

9) Multiple unspecified errors can be exploited to corrupt memory.

Successful exploitation of vulnerabilities #1, #3, #6, #7, and #9 may
allow execution of arbitrary code.

SOLUTION:
Update or upgrade to Firefox versions 11.0 or 10.0.3, Thunderbird
versions 11.0 or 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey version 2.8.
