For example by sending an array with 2^31 elements.
Summary: Make sure child actors can't crash parent process through OOP → Make sure child actors can't force parent to crash with Out-of-Memory (OOM) errors
We should specifically focus this on maliciously-crafted IPC messages triggering OOM only in the parent.  On b2g, after bug 768832 it will be impossible for content process allocations to cause the parent to be OOM-killed.

Christoph, would you consider this a dupe of work you are doing and closable?
Flags: needinfo?(cdiehl)
Basically, yes. There will be component specific follow up bugs where such conditions failed.
