Concurrency vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox 188.8.131.52 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
that load a deeply nested XML file, followed by redirecting the
browser to another page, which leads to a concurrency failure that
causes structures to be freed incorrectly, as demonstrated by (1)
ffoxdie and (2) ffoxdie3. NOTE: it has been reported that Netscape
8.1 and K-Meleon 1.0.1 are also affected by ffoxdie. Mozilla
confirmed to CVE that ffoxdie and ffoxdie3 trigger the same underlying
vulnerability. NOTE: it was later reported that Firefox 2.0 RC2 and
184.108.40.206 are also affected.
Note:References are provided for the convenience of the reader to help distinguish between vulnerabilities. The list is not intended to be complete.
