Description

Jesse Ruderman and Gary Kwong discovered flaws in the browser engine. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0772, CVE-2009-0774)

Georgi Guninski discovered a flaw when Firefox performed a cross-domain redirect. An attacker could bypass the same-origin policy in Firefox by utilizing nsIRDFService and steal private data from users authenticated to the redirected website. (CVE-2009-0776)
