Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey Convolve3x3() buffer overflow
|firefox-convolve3x3-bo (79165)||High Risk|
Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey are vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the Convolve3x3() function. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the browser to crash.
