malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could
cause Firefox to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2007-5338, CVE-2007-5339, CVE-2007-5340)
Several flaws were found in the way in which Firefox displayed
malformed web content. A web page containing specially crafted content
could potentially trick a user into surrendering sensitive
information. (CVE-2007-1095, CVE-2007-3844, CVE-2007-3511,
A flaw was found in the Firefox sftp protocol handler. A malicious web
page could access data from a remote sftp site, possibly stealing
sensitive user data. (CVE-2007-5337)

generates a digest authentication request. If a user opened a
specially crafted URL, it was possible to perform cross-site scripting
