Description

Boris Zbarsky, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, Michael Wu, and Ted Mielczarek discovered multiple memory vulnerabilities. An attacker could exploit these to possibly run arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0079)

It was discovered that there was a vulnerability in the memory handling of certain types of content. An attacker could exploit this to possibly run arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0081)

It was discovered that Firefox incorrectly handled certain JavaScript requests. An attacker could exploit this to possibly run arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0069)

Ian Beer discovered a vulnerability in the memory handling of a certain types of documents. An attacker could exploit this to possibly run arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0070)

Chris Evans discovered a vulnerability in Firefox's XSLT generate-id() function. An attacker could possibly use this vulnerability to make other attacks more reliable. (CVE-2011-1202).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
