This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Mozilla Firefox. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists in js3250.dll. When a JavaObject is created and deleted, there is not a proper sanity check for the LookupGetterorSetter() function, which can result in a dangling pointer being passed to the JS_ValueToId() function. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of the CURRENT user.
