international domain names. An attacker could create a
specially crafted HTML file, which when viewed by the victim
would cause Firefox to crash or possibly execute arbitrary
code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-2871 to this

package that contains a backported patch and is not
vulnerable to this issue.
