Is this exploitable or just a DoS/hang? would more/fewer/different characters change the symptoms?

smontagu - any update here?

This is apparently regression from making a preformatted newline a new bidi paragraph: we need to test whether there are any fluid continuations even beyond the current paragraph, but children of the same block element and convert them to non-fluid.

Do we need to land this on Aurora as a security bug or did it turn out benign and we can unhide the bug? If it really is a potentially sg:critical bug we maybe shouldn't have called it out in the Platform meeting, especially with a checked-in crashtest.
Comment 8 User image Simon Montagu :smontagu 2012-01-24 21:40:28 PST
Regression window is, which is not what I expected: possibly bug 578977?

This doesn't seem exploitable to me, but since we have a simple patch let's fix it on aurora and beta.

[Approval Request Comment]
Regression caused by (bug #): 578977(? see comment 8)
User impact if declined: hangs and possible crashes
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): baked 6 days on m-c, has crashtest.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): minimal.

(In reply to Simon Montagu from comment #8)
> possibly bug 578977?

Confirmed by reverting bug 578977 in an Aurora debug build on Linux.
Bug 578977 did change some things that affects next-in-flows of first-letter
frames, so it makes sense.
Comment 11 User image Curtis Koenig [:curtisk-use]] 2012-01-25 15:00:30 PST
given comment 9 I think we can hold off on this given timing for 10. But we should be able to land this on Aurora, we can cover that in the next triage/channel mtg.

[Triage Comment]
We don't have any evidence that this is exploitable or causing significant user pain - let's let this ride the train.

Verified using linux debug build on Ubuntu 11.10 with beta debug build (18.4.2012)- no hang/assertion when loading the test case from comment 0.
