Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-09-17 10:20:09 EDT
Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a use-after-free problem in the Animation Manager during the cloning of stylesheets. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash.

In general this flaw cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled, but is potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
