Description Victor Pereira 2014-02-05 13:53:54 UTC

Fredrik 'Flonka' Lönnqvist discovered an issue with image decoding in RasterImage caused by continued use of discarded images. This could allow for the writing to unowned memory and a potentially exploitable crash. 

In general this flaw cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and Seamonkey products because scripting is disabled in mail, but is potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
