Description Josh Bressers 2009-06-01 15:20:52 EDT
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a series of
vulnerabilities which allow scripts from page content to run with elevated
privileges. Using these vulnerabilities, an attacker could cause a chrome
privileged object, such as the browser sidebar or the FeedWriter, to
interact with web content in such a way that attacker controlled code may
be executed with the object's chrome privileges.
