in denial of service attacks or arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736)
- A buffer overflow is possible because of an issue with
multi-column layouts. (CVE-2013-1732)
denial of service or arbitrary code execution. Versions
of Firefox 20 or greater are not susceptible to the
arbitrary code execution mentioned above.
compartments could result in denial of service or
possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1725)
- An object is not properly identified during use of
user-defined getter methods on DOM proxies. This could
result in access restrictions being bypassed.
