Mozilla Browsers Error in Processing Empty Javascript Functions Lets Remote Users Deny Service

Paul Kurczaba reported a vulnerability in the Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Suite and Mozilla Camino browsers.  A remote user can cause the browser to crash.  A remote user can create specially crafted Javascript that, when loaded by the target user, will cause the target user’s browser to crash. The code can repeatedly call an empty function to trigger the flaw. 
 
Impact:  A remote user can cause the target user’s browser to crash.
Solution:  No solution was available at the time of this entry.  As a workaround, Javascript can be disabled.
