(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.
