#CVE-2019-17012: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 71, Firefox ESR 68.3, and Thunderbird 68.3

Reporter
    Mozilla developers and community
Impact
    high

Description

Mozilla developers Christoph Diehl, Nathan Froyd, Jason Kratzer, Christian Holler, Karl Tomlinson, Tyson Smith reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 70 and Firefox ESR 68.2. 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.
