Description Josh Bressers 2010-10-12 10:23:08 EDT
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that when window.__lookupGetter__ is called with no arguments
the code assumes the top JavaScript stack value is a property name. Since
there were no arguments passed into the function, the top value could
represent uninitialized memory or a pointer to a previously freed
JavaScript object. Under such circumstances the value is passed to another
subroutine which calls through the dangling pointer, potentially executing
attacker-controlled memory.
