Description Prasad J Pandit 2015-09-23 18:07:52 UTC
Security researcher Ronald Crane reported eight vulnerabilities affecting
released code that were found through code inspection. These included several
potential memory safety issues resulting from the use of snprintf, one use of
unowned memory, one use of a string without overflow checks, and five memory
safety bugs. 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.
