CVE-2009-1044

Priority
Description
Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7 on Windows 7 allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via unknown vectors related to the _moveToEdgeShift XUL tree
method, which triggers garbage collection on objects that are still in use,
as demonstrated by Nils during a PWN2OWN competition at CanSecWest 2009.
Notes
 kees> very late in the day announcement http://blog.mozilla.com/blog/2009/03/27/firefox-308-security-release-now-available/
 jdstrand> CVEs in Firefox are tracked in the xulrunner source packages. The
  mapping of xulrunner sources to firefox is:
  xulrunner (1.8.0): firefox (1.5) - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
  xulrunner (1.8.1): firefox (2.0) - Ubuntu 6.10 - 8.04 LTS
  xulrunner-1.9: firefox-3.0
  xulrunner-1.9.1: firefox-3.5
 jdstrand: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 10.04 LTS uses the embedded xulrunner and not
  the system xulrunner-1.9.2, so it is tracked in the firefox source package.
