The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can exploit a cross-domain flaw to obtain information from a different domain [CVE-2012-4168].

A user can trigger a logic error involving multiple dialogs in Firefox to cause a crash [CVE-2012-4171].

Xu Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Will Dormann of CERT, Honggang Ren of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Alexander Gavrun (via iDefense's Vulnerability Contributor Program), Claudio Santambrogio of Opera Software ASA, and Attila Suszter reported these vulnerabilities.
