decoding that could allow application crashes and
possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1482)

and 'imgRequestProxy' that could allow application
crashes and possibly arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1486)

allow cross-origin information disclosure.
(CVE-2014-1487)

- Errors exist related to the included Network Security
