Description Gavin Barraclough 2013-07-31 10:44:20 PDT
JSValue::get is implemented to: 1) Check if the value is a cell – if not, synthesize a prototype to search, 2) call getOwnPropertySlot on the cell, 3) if this returns false, cast to JSObject to get the prototype, and walk the prototype chain. By all rights this should crash when passed a string and accessing a property that does not exist, because the string is a cell, getOwnPropertySlot should return false, and the cast to JSObject should be unsafe. To work around this, JSString::getOwnPropertySlot actually implements 'get' functionality - searching the prototype chain, and faking out a return value of undefined if no property is found. This is a huge hazard, since fixing JSString::getOwnPropertySlot or calling getOwnPropertySlot on cells from elsewhere would introduce bugs. Fortunately it is only ever called in this one place. The fix here is to move getOwnPropertySlot onto JSObjecte and end this madness - cells don't have property slots anyway.
