Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.7.1. Such versions are potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

A use-after-free error exists in the method 'nsXBLDocumentInfo::ReadPrototypeBindings' and XBL bindings are not properly removed from a hash table in the event of failure. Clean up processes may then attempt to use this data and cause application crashes. These application crashes are potentially exploitable.
