Description Josh Bressers 2010-05-10 14:56:02 EDT
Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that two plugin instances could
interact in a way in which one plugin gets a reference to an object owned
by a second plugin and continues to hold that reference after the second
plugin is unloaded and its object is destroyed. In these cases, the first
plugin would contain a pointer to freed memory which, if accessed, could be
used by an attacker to execute arbitrary code on a victim's computer.
