Description

A race condition flaw was found in the way XULRunner handled Document Object Model (DOM) element properties. Malicious HTML content could cause an application linked against XULRunner (such as Firefox) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2010-3765)

After installing the update, applications using XULRunner must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
