SuSE 11 Security Update : Mozilla XULrunner (SAT Patch Number 1778)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 44379


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


Mozilla XULrunner was upgraded to fixing some bugs and regressions.

The following security bug has been fixed :

- The nsObserverList::FillObserverArray function in xpcom/ds/nsObserverList.cpp in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted website that triggers memory consumption and an accompanying Low Memory alert dialog, and also triggers attempted removal of an observer from an empty observers array.


Apply SAT patch number 1778.
