Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2015-12-15 03:53:20 EST
Security researcher Ronald Crane reported three buffer overflows affecting released code that were found through code inspection. They do not all have clear mechanisms to be exploited through web content but are vulnerable if a mechanism can be found to trigger them.
