Description

Security researcher Sergey Glazunov reported that it was possible to access the locationbar property of a window object after it had been closed. Since the closed window's memory could have been subsequently reused by the system it was possible that an attempt to access the locationbar property could result in the execution of attacker-controlled memory.
