Description Josh Bressers 2009-10-21 18:06:15 UTC
Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the XPCOM utility
XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS unwrapped doubly-wrapped objects before
returning them to chrome callers. This could result in chrome privileged
code calling methods on an object which had previously been created or
modified by web content, potentially executing malicious JavaScript code
with chrome privileges.
