memory safety hazards (rv:4.0) Mozilla identified and fixed several
memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in SeaMonkey 2.2 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.
