Firefox (with IETab Plugin) Null Pointer Dereferences Bug
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Vendor: Mozilla
Product: FireFox with IE Tab

Tested On:
FireFox Version 1.5.0.3 + IE Tab Version 1.0.9 + Windows (XP / 2K)

Introduction:
IETab (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/) is a recently released
(April 12, 2006) plugin for Firefox. It is used to browse IE (only) specific
sites under Firefox. Guess what ?? You can run windowsupdate under FireFox
;-)

Bug Details:
Firefox with the IETab installed crashes when ietab plugin is unable to
handle specific javascripts. It seems to be a null pointer dereference bug.
For more details refer the PoC section.

Proof-of-Concept:
Copy & paste the following URL to the Firefox addressbar and press enter -

chrome://ietab/content/reloaded.html?url=javascript:alert(document.cooki
e);

Note: This test will not work if IETab is not installed.

The Registers details after the crash:
