Description Murray McAllister 2014-04-10 07:09:45 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2014-1717 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2014-1717
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1717
Assigned: 20140129
Reference: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2014/04/stable-channel-update.html
Reference: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=353004
Reference: https://code.google.com/p/v8/source/detail?r=20020

Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 34.0.1847.116, does not
properly use numeric casts during handling of typed arrays, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds
array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted
JavaScript code.

From a brief, initial investigation, the function is not in the versions of v8 as shipped in Red Hat products.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2014-06-16 12:45:48 UTC
This fix is not applicable to v8 3.14.
