Title: Possible information disclosure in BMP decoder
Announced: February 19, 2008
Reporter: Gynvael Coldwind // Vexillium
Products: Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey
Security researcher Gynvael Coldwind of Vexillium (crediting help from udevd and porneL) demonstrated that BMP images could be used to reveal small chunks of uninitialized memory that might contain sensitive data from other pages or other programs, and that this data could be extracted from the image using methods associated with the <canvas> feature.
Note: Because this flaw also affected products from other vendors disclosure was delayed until they could release a fix.
Note: The above is the 11th Security Advisory by Mozilla for this year 2008.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
