Mozilla Firefox/SeaMonkey CVE-2011-0076 Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

Mozilla Firefox and SeaMonkey are prone to a privilege-escalation vulnerability.

An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting user into viewing malicious content. A successful exploit will result in the execution of arbitrary attacker-supplied code with elevated privileges. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

This issue is fixed in:

Firefox 3.6.17
Firefox 3.5.19
SeaMonkey 2.0.14

NOTE: This issue was previously discussed in BID 47635 (Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird/SeaMonkey MFSA 2011-12 through -18 Multiple Vulnerabilities) but has been moved to its own record to better document it.
