Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-10-28 00:47:02 EDT
Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a user-after-free when interacting with HTML document templates. This leads to a potentially exploitable crash.

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