Description Doran Moppert 2019-12-04 01:07:24 UTC
Mozilla developers and community members reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 70. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.
