"Mozilla has been able to reproduce a DoS issue based on the information, according to a new post on the Mozilla Developer Center. So far,
they have yet to determine whether code execution is a possibility, but say they are "still investigating" and promise updates as necessary.
Nevertheless, it's beginning to look as though this was largely a prank.
Mischa Spiegelmock has now said that the talk "was to be humorous," and that the presentation covered a "previously known Firefox
vulnerability that could result in a stack overflow ending up in remote code execution." In other words, they didn't discover a new flaw."
