Description Josh Bressers 2009-07-16 10:16:09 EDT
Security researcher Attila Suszter reported that when a page contains a
Flash object which presents a slow script dialog, and the page is navigated
while the dialog is still visible to the user, the Flash plugin is unloaded
resulting in a crash due to a call to the deleted object. This crash could
potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's
computer.

Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-07-22 14:51:50 EDT
MITRE's CVE-2009-2467 entry:

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 and 3.5 before 3.5.1 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a Flash object, a slow
script dialog, and the unloading of the Flash plugin, which triggers
attempted use of a deleted object.
