Endpoint Vulnerability

Use-after-free, out of bounds read, and buffer overflow issues found using Address Sanitizer

Description

Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a series of use-after-free, out of bounds read, and buffer overflow problems rated as low to critical security issues in shipped software. Some of these issues are potentially exploitable, allowing for remote code execution. We would also like to thank Abhishek for reporting four additional use-after-free and out of bounds write flaws introduced during Firefox development that were fixed before general release.
