From MFSA 2008-41:
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a series of
vulnerabilities by which page content can pollute XPCNativeWrappers and
have arbitrary code run with chrome privileges. One variant reported by
moz_bug_r_a4 only affected Firefox 2.

This bug is to track the attack that works against both Firefox 2 and 3.
