Several flaws were found in the way Firefox displayed malformed web
content. A webpage containing specially crafted content could trick a

saves login information for a malicious website, it could be possible
to corrupt the password database, preventing the user from properly
accessing saved password data. (CVE-2008-0417)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles certain chrome URLs. If a
user has certain extensions installed, it could allow a malicious
website to steal sensitive session data. Note: this flaw does not
affect a default installation of Firefox. (CVE-2008-0418)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox saves certain text files. If a
website offers a file of type 'plain/text', rather than 'text/plain',
Firefox will not show future 'text/plain' content to the user in the
browser, forcing them to save those files locally to view the content.
