Buffer overflow in the International Domain Name (IDN) support in
Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6 and earlier, and Netscape 126.96.36.199 and 7.2,
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a hostname with all "soft" hyphens
(character 0xAD), which is not properly handled by the NormalizeIDN
call in nsStandardURL::BuildNormalizedSpec.
