Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2014-12-01 04:16:52 UTC
Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a buffer overflow during the parsing of media content. This leads 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.
