Description Josh Bressers 2010-09-03 15:47:28 UTC
Security researcher Sergey Glazunov reported a dangling pointer
vulnerability in the implementation of navigator.plugins in which the
navigator object could retain a pointer to the plugins array even after it
had been destroyed. An attacker could potentially use this issue to crash
the browser and run arbitrary code on a victim's computer.
