Vulnerability reported in Foxit PDF plugin for Firefox

Italian security researcher Andrea Micalizzi has recently sought, and found, a possibly-exploitable vulnerability in the latest Foxit PDF plugin for Firefox.

Micalizzi hasn't actually produced a proof-of-concept exploit, but I was able to reproduce his result at will.
