CVE-2017-7828

critical
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when flushing and resizing layout because the "PressShell" object has been freed while still in use. This results in a potentially exploitable crash during these operations. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 57, Firefox ESR < 52.5, and Thunderbird < 52.5.
