Description Doran Moppert 2021-10-06 00:37:12 UTC
Mozilla developers and community members Kevin Brosnan, Mihai Alexandru Michis, and Christian Holler reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 92 and Firefox ESR 91.1. 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.
