Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2013-52

Title: Arbitrary code execution within Profiler
Impact: High
Announced: June 25, 2013
Reporter: Mariusz Mlynski
Products: Firefox

Fixed in: Firefox 22.0


Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported that when a user examines the profiler output on a malicious website containing specially crafted code, it is possible for arbitrary code execution to occur. This occurs because the profiler user interface runs in a special iframe that parses data from the profiler to render the UI, leaving it susceptible to manipulation.
