Firefox JavaScript Flaw

It appears that the folks over at Secunia have found a JavaScript flaw in Firefox. The flaw allows a script to read an arbitrary amount of information contained in the browser memory. This data could be anything from URLs to JavaScript commands. Secunia has posted a test that demonstrates the flaw. The test uses a buffer overrun technique to access the memory, similar to popular hacking methods used worldwide.
