Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey texImage2D denial of service

firefox-teximage2d-dos (75155) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey are vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the improper restrictions of JSVAL_TO_OBJECT casts by the texImage2D() function. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to possibly execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system or cause the application to crash.
