Description

Multiple Mozilla products are prone to an overflow condition. This issue is triggered when nsSVGFEMorphologyElement::Filter fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow. With the addition of an unspecified value that is too large to be stored as a signed 32-bit integer, a remote attacker can potentially execute arbitrary code.
