Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-07-14 08:16:35 EDT
Google developer Tony Payne reported an out of bounds (OOB) read in QCMS, Mozilla's color management library. With a carefully crafted color profile portions of a user's memory could be incorporated into a transformed image and possibly deciphered.
