CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks and potentially compromise a user's system.

1) A race condition when setting the "window.location" property can be exploited to generate a fake HTTP Referer header, which can be used to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

2) Some errors within the XBL component, the "drawImage()" function, and the "nsCSSFrameConstructor" can be exploited to cause memory corruption and potentially allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 2.0.0.10.


Solution:
Update to version 2.0.0.10.
