Vulnerability Insight:
Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL
Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

A use-after-free flaw was found in the way Firefox removed nsDOMAttribute
child nodes. In certain circumstances, due to the premature notification
of AttributeChildRemoved, a malicious script could possibly use this flaw
to cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-3659)

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2012-0442)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox parsed Ogg Vorbis media files. A web
page containing a malicious Ogg Vorbis media file could cause Firefox to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0444)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox parsed certain Scalable Vector Graphics
(SVG) image files that contained eXtensible Style Sheet Language
Transformations (XSLT). A web page containing a malicious SVG image file
could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0449)

For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox 3.6.26. You can find a link to the Mozilla
