TITLE:
Mozilla Firefox Multiple Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA37242

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/37242/

DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox, which can
be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks or compromise a user's system.

1) An error exists when handling out-of-memory conditions. This can
be exploited to trigger a memory corruption and execute arbitrary
code via a specially crafted web page.

2) Multiple errors in the browser engine can be exploited to corrupt
memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.

3) An error exists in the implementation of Web Worker array data
types when processing posted messages. This can be exploited to
corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.

4) An error exists in the implementation of the "showModalDialog()"
function. This can be exploited to potentially execute arbitrary
JavaScript code in the context of a domain calling the affected
function with external parameters.

5) An error exists when processing SVG documents served with a
Content-Type of "application/octet-stream". This can be exploited to
execute arbitrary JavaScript code in the context of a domain hosting
the SVG document.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 3.5.8 and
3.0.18.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 3.0.18 or 3.5.8.

The vulnerabilities are also fixed in version 3.6.
