Jesse Ruderman and Gary Kwong discovered flaws in the browser engine.
If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote
attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
Georgi Guninski discovered a flaw when Firefox performed a
cross-domain redirect. An attacker could bypass the same-origin policy
in Firefox by utilizing nsIRDFService and steal private data from
users authenticated to the redirected website. (CVE-2009-0776)
