Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

An invalid free flaw was found in Firefox's plugin handler. Malicious
web content could result in an invalid memory pointer being freed,
causing Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-2755)

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that corrects this issue. After installing
the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect."
