Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will crash the target user's browser, execute arbitrary code on the target user's browser, obtain files from the target user's system, spoof trusted certificates, or initiate arbitrary socket connections.

A remote user can also cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will run in the security context of arbitrary domains. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, execute arbitrary code on the target user's browser, obtain files from the target user's system, spoof trusted certificates, initiate arbitrary socket connections, or execute scripting code in arbitrary domains.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (2.0.0.15).

The vendor's advisories are available at:
