# Firefox <= 8.0 null pointer dereference PoC exploit
# Author: 0in (Maksymilian Motyl)
# Tested on Firefox 8.0/4.0 on windows and Firefox 7.1 on Linux
# Lets see in code:
# $ cat ./mozilla-release/content/base/src/nsObjectLoadingContent.cpp

NS_IMETHODIMP nsObjectLoadingContent::OnStartRequest(nsIRequest *aRequest,
                                       nsISupports *aContext)
{
  if (aRequest != mChannel) { // our pointer is checked there, mChannel is null. I think maybe some magick in js can help there
    return NS_BINDING_ABORTED;
  }
  AutoNotifier notifier(this, PR_TRUE);

  if (!IsSuccessfulRequest(aRequest)) { // go


//----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRBool nsObjectLoadingContent::IsSuccessfulRequest(nsIRequest* aRequest)
{
  nsresult status;
  nsresult rv = aRequest->GetStatus(&status); // Code execution is here.
