Mozilla/Netscape Vulnerability

Zzen-parse has reported a vulnerability in Mozilla and Netscape, potentially allowing malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system. The vulnerability is caused due to an integer overflow within the SOAPParameter object's constructor. This can e.g. be exploited via a malicious web page containing specially crafted javascript. This has been reported in Mozilla 1.6, and Netscape 7.0 and 7.1. Prior versions may also be affected.

Affected Mozilla/Netscape Web browsers:

  • Mozilla 0.x

  • Mozilla 1.0 to 1.6

  • Netscape 7.x
Firefox 0.9 onwards is not affected; all users of the older versions are advised to upgrade the newer releases.
