Mozilla Comments on Firefox 3.5.1 issue

Yesterday we published a diary about a new vulnerability and POC that affected Firefox 3.5.1.  Today we received a note from the good people at Mozilla with some clarification.  Here is what they said:

We do not believe this is any kind of boundary condition, but a
non-exploitable denial-of-service due to memory exhaustion.

Our bug for reference:

Thanks for the update, Reed!
