  - Error in 'Math.random' function in the JavaScript implementation which uses
    a random number generator that is seeded only once per document object, which
    makes it easier for remote attackers to track a user, or trick a user into
    acting upon a spoofed pop-up message, by calculating the seed value.
  - Error in 'js_InitRandom' function in the JavaScript implementation uses a
    context pointer in conjunction with its successor pointer for seeding of a
    random number generator, which makes it easier for remote attackers to guess
    the seed value via a brute-force attack.";
