Description Siddharth Sharma 2016-04-25 18:38:08 UTC
Mozilla developers fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

Christian Holler reported a memory safety problem that is fixed in Firefox ESR 38.8.
