Mozilla Firefox JSframe code execution
|mozilla-firefox-jsframe-code-execution (42589)||High Risk|
Mozilla Firefox could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a heap corruption error when handling JSframes. By persuading a victim to visit a Web site that invokes an empty applet after writing to an Iframe using the document.open, document.write, or document.close procedure, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to crash the browser and possibly execute arbitrary code.
