Description

Mozilla developer Daniel Glazman demonstrated that an improperly encoded .properties file in an add-on can result in uninitialized memory being used. This could potentially result in small chunks of data formerly used by other programs being exposed to the add-on code. If the localized string were made available to web content by the add-on this might leak sensitive data.
