DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been discovered in Mozilla Firefox, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries
(e.g. dwmapi.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to
load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening an HTML
file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.0.6 on a Windows system.
Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not open untrusted files.
