Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in Firefox Versions Before 3.5.3 May Allow Execution of Arbitrary Code, Access to Unauthorized Data, or Denial of Service (DoS)
Multiple security vulnerabilities with varying impacts affect Firefox (see firefox(1)) versions prior to 3.5.3 as shipped with OpenSolaris. These vulnerabilities may allow an unprivileged remote user to crash the Firefox application or possibly execute arbitrary code on the system where Firefox is being run, resulting in a Denial of service (DoS). Further vulnerabilities may allow a remote user to mislead a Firefox user into incorrectly trusting a site by providing a URL in the location bar which may appear to be another URL, or to compromise the cryptography features that are active within the browser application.
The following Mozilla advisories describe the vulnerabilities:

These issues can occur in the following releases:
1. The issue described in MFSA2009-48 only impacts versions of Firefox prior to 3.5. This means that OpenSolaris builds snv_119 and later are not impacted by the issue described in MFSA2009-48.
2. Solaris 8 and 9 do not include Firefox and therefore are not impacted by these issues. Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris prior to snv_95 do not ship Firefox 3.x, but the Firefox version 2.x that is included may be impacted, in which case a separate Sun Alert describing the resolution for Solaris 10 will be published.
3. OpenSolaris distributions may include additional bug fixes above and beyond the build from which it was derived. The base build can be derived as follows:
$ uname -v3. Symptoms
There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the described issues have occurred.
1. Open the "Preferences" dialog from the Edit menu
2. Select the "Content" tab
