Multiple Mozilla products nsChildView class code execution
|mozilla-nschildview-code-exec (72858)||High Risk|
Multiple Mozilla products including Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a memory corruption error in the nsChildView class. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted Ogg Vorbis file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
