    3. Description:
    
    Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL
    Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.
    
    A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain add-ons. A web page
    containing malicious content could cause an add-on to grant itself full
    browser privileges, which could lead to arbitrary code execution with the
    privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-3647)
    
    A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Firefox handled
    certain multibyte character sets. A web page containing malicious content
    could cause Firefox to run JavaScript code with the permissions of a
    different website. (CVE-2011-3648)
    
    A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled large JavaScript scripts. A web
    page containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to crash or,
    potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
    Firefox. (CVE-2011-3650)
    
    For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
    advisories for Firefox 3.6.24. You can find a link to the Mozilla
    advisories in the References section of this erratum.
    
    All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
    Firefox version 3.6.24, which corrects these issues. After installing the
    update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
