- If an attacker could trick a user into holding down the
'Enter' key, via a malicious game, for example, a
malicious application or extension could be downloaded
and executed.(CVE-2011-2372, CVE-2011-3001)

corrupt memory. No additional information is available
at this time. (CVE-2011-2995, CVE-2011-2997)
- A weakness exists when handling the 'Location' header.
This can lead to response splitting attacks when
visiting a vulnerable web server. The same fix has been
applied to the headers 'Content-Length' and

not properly check for return values from the
'GrowAtomTable()' function. This vulnerability can be
exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending a

exists within WebGL that can be exploited to corrupt
memory. (CVE-2011-3002, CVE-2011-3003)
- There is an error within the JSSubScriptLoader that
incorrectly unwraps 'XPCNativeWrappers'. By tricking
