New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Mozilla developers and community members reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 63. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 64.
