(CVE-2005-2701).
Mats Palmgren reported a potentially exploitable stack corruption
using specific Unicode sequences (CVE-2005-2702).
Georgi Guninski discovered an integer overflow in the JavaScript
engine (CVE-2005-2705)
Other issues ranging from DOM object spoofing to request header
spoofing were also found and fixed in the latest versions
(CVE-2005-2703, CVE-2005-2704, CVE-2005-2706, CVE-2005-2707).
The Gecko engine in itself is also affected by some of these issues and
has been updated as well.

visit it, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution with the
victim's rights or facilitated spoofing of known websites.

Workaround

There is no known workaround for all the issues.
