New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Double free vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.7, Thunderbird before 2.0.0.21, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.15 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via "cloned XUL DOM elements which were linked as a parent and child," which are not properly handled during garbage collection.
