Several vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.|
A remote user can create a specially crafted XBM image file, that when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2005-2701]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
A remote user can create HTML containing specially crafted "zero-width non-joiner" Unicode sequences that, when loaded by the target user, will cause the target user's browser to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2005-2702].
The browser contains a flaw in making XMLHttp requests. A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will spoof XMLHttpRequest headers and may be able to exploit other vulnerabilities on the target user's system or may be able to generate XMLHttp requests to other hosts [CVE-2005-2703].
A remote user can create HTML that will open a new window without any user interface
components (e.g., address bar, status bar) and potentially spoof various display elements [CVE-2005-2707].
A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system with the privileges of the target user.|
