Description

Abhishek Arya discovered that NSPR incorrectly handled certain console
functions. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause NSPR to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. The
default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.
