Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2015-08-11 06:32:56 UTC
Security researcher Ronald Crane reported three vulnerabilities affecting released code that were found through code inspection. These included one use of unowned memory, one use of a deleted object, and one memory safety bug. These do not all have clear mechanisms to be exploited through web content but are vulnerable if a mechanism can be found to trigger them.
