  • CVE-2008-2798 Devon Hubbard, Jesse Ruderman and Martijn Wargers discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

  • CVE-2008-2799 Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman and Gary Kwong discovered crashes in the JavaScript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

    It was discovered that missing boundary checks on a
    reference counter for CSS objects can lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code.

  - CVE-2008-2798
    Devon Hubbard, Jesse Ruderman and Martijn Wargers
    discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might
    allow the execution of arbitrary code.

  - CVE-2008-2799
    Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman and Gary Kwong discovered
    crashes in the JavaScript engine, which might allow the

    'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that missing input sanitising
    in the mozIJSSubScriptLoader.loadSubScript() function

    Daniel Glazman discovered that a programming error in
    the code for parsing .properties files could lead to
