Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2007-35 Title: XPCNativeWraper pollution using Script object Impact: Critical Announced: October 18, 2007 Reporter: moz_bug_r_a4 Products: Firefox, SeaMonkey Fixed in: Firefox 2.0.0.8 SeaMonkey 1.1.5 Description Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that it was possible to use the Script object to modify XPCNativeWrappers in such a way that subsequent access by the browser chrome--such as by right-clicking to open a context menu--can cause attacker-supplied javascript to run with the same privileges as the user. This is similar to MFSA 2007-25 fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.5 References * https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387881 * CVE-2007-5338
