Description

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain web content. A malicious website could cause Firefox to crash, or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2785)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain command line URLs. If another application passed Firefox a malformed URL, it could result in Firefox executing local malicious content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-2933)
