Miscellaneous memory safety hazards

Mozilla developers and community members identified and fixed several
memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox 3.6 and other
Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory
corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with
enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run
arbitrary code.

Gary Kwong, Igor Bukanov, Nils and Bob Clary reported memory safety
issues which affected Firefox 3.6. (CVE-2011-2982)
