Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188787
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
shutdown discovered it was possible to use the Object.watch() method to
access an internal function object (the "clone parent") which could then be
used to install malware such as password sniffers or viruses.
In pre-release versions of Firefox 1.5 the same technique could be applied
to the Array generic methods introduced in that release.
