multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox 3.6.x is potentially affected by the

an attacker if the victim can be tricked into setting a
new home page by dragging a specially crafted link to
the 'home' button URL, which will set the user's home
page to a 'javascript:' URL. (CVE-2012-0458)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to an
out of bounds read in SVG filters. (CVE-2012-0456)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists that can be
triggered by dragging and dropping 'javascript:' links
onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455)
