Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-09-17 22:12:49 EDT
Security researcher Nils reported a potentially exploitable use-after-free in an early test version of Firefox 25. Mozilla developer Bobby Holley found that the cause was an older garbage collection bug that a more recent change made easier to trigger.
