zen-parse discovered and iDEFENSE reported an exploitable integer overflow in a scriptable Mozilla component `SOAPParameter':

Improper input validation to the SOAPParameter object constructor in Netscape and Mozilla allows execution of arbitrary code. The SOAPParameter object's constructor contains an integer overflow which allows controllable heap corruption. A web page can be constructed to leverage this into remote execution of arbitrary code.
