Description Michael Kaplan 2020-10-05 11:02:24 UTC
In Mozilla firefox memory safety bugs were reported. 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. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 81.
