Description Vincent Danen 2010-02-17 00:47:24 UTC
Security researcher Hidetake Jo of Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported
that the properties set on an object passed to showModalDialog were readable by
the document contained in the dialog, even when the document was from a
different domain. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could
result in a website running untrusted JavaScript if it assumed the
dialogArguments could not be initialized by another site.

An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, also
independently reported this issue to Mozilla.
