Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-04 04:18:53 EST
Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day 
Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a 
use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed 
and subsequently dereferenced. 
This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able 
to store malicious code in the freed section of memory.

Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and 
reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received.
