Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-04 04:10:44 EST
Security researcher Zach Hoffman reported that a recursive call 
to eval() wrapped in a try/catch statement places the browser 
into a inconsistent state. Any dialog box opened in this state is 
displayed without text and with non-functioning buttons. 
Closing the window causes the dialog to evaluate to true. 

An attacker could use this issue to force a user into accepting 
any dialog, such as one granting elevated privileges to the page 
presenting the dialog.
