Description

The JSSubScriptLoader in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6 and SeaMonkey before 2.4 does not properly handle XPCNativeWrappers during calls to the loadSubScript method in an add-on, which makes it easier for remote attackers to gain privileges via a crafted web site that leverages certain unwrapping behavior.
