CVE-2010-0220 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-0220):
  The nsObserverList::FillObserverArray function in
  xpcom/ds/nsObserverList.cpp in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.7 allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via
  a crafted web site that triggers memory consumption and an
  accompanying Low Memory alert dialog, and also triggers attempted
  removal of an observer from an empty observers array.
