Description Josh Bressers 2009-04-17 11:19:25 EDT
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that it is possible to
create a document whose URI does not match the document's principal using
XMLHttpRequest. This type of mismatch leads to incorrect results in
principal-based security checks. An attacker could use this vulnerability
to execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of another site.

moz_bug_r_a4 separately reported that XPCNativeWrapper.toString's __proto__
comes from the wrong scope which results in calls to that function being
executed in the wrong context in certain circumstances. An attacker could
use this vulnerability to run arbitrary code within the context of a
different site. Alternatively, if chrome were to call
content.toString.call(), then attacker-defined functions could be run with
chrome privileges.
