Mozilla Firefox Floating Point Memory Allocation Vulnerability  

Array index error in the (1) dtoa implementation in dtoa.c (aka pdtoa.c) and the (2) gdtoa (aka new dtoa) implementation in gdtoa/misc.c in libc, as used in multiple operating systems and products including in FreeBSD 6.4 and 7.2, NetBSD 5.0, OpenBSD 4.5, Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x before 3.0.15 and 3.5.x before 3.5.4, K-Meleon 1.5.3, SeaMonkey 1.1.8, and other products, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large precision value in the format argument to a printf function, which triggers incorrect memory allocation and a heap-based buffer overflow during conversion to a floating-point number.

Quick Help

References To Objects
[[ .. ${{...}}]] are refences to values of other objects.
Unresolved variable or object references
Oval definitions use objects referenced by other objects to define complex data structures. Sometimes you may see that a link to object/variable details page instead of the actual value of an object or variable is displayed. This is caused by the recursion depth limit used to prevent excessive web server resource usage.

Regular Expression Patterns
Some object or state definitions are defined as regular expression patterns, you should interpret the regexp pattern while evaluating them.
