Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

zen-parse discovered and iDEFENSE reported an exploitable integer
overflow in a scriptable Mozilla component `SOAPParameter' :

Improper input validation to the SOAPParameter object constructor in
Netscape and Mozilla allows execution of arbitrary code. The
SOAPParameter object's constructor contains an integer overflow which
allows controllable heap corruption. A web page can be constructed to
leverage this into remote execution of arbitrary code.
