Title: Read beyond buffer while parsing XML
Severity: Low
Date: February 1, 2006
Reporter: Johnny Stenback
Products: Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey

Fixed in: Firefox
  SeaMonkey 1.0


An upgrade in the XML parser introduced a bug that could read beyond the end of the buffer, often causing a crash. We don't know if this could be exploited to incorporate private data into the DOM of an XML document, but could be a privacy risk if so. Firefox 1.0, Thunderbird 1.0 and Mozilla Suite 1.7 are not affected.

Update (13 April 2006)
This flaw has been fixed in Thunderbird


Upgrade to the fixed versions.
