- An out of bounds read vulnerability was found in libevent in the search_make_new function. If an attacker could cause an application using libevent to attempt resolving an empty hostname, an out of bounds read could occur possibly leading to a crash. (CVE-2016-10197)

- A vulnerability was found in libevent with the parsing of DNS requests and replies. An attacker could send a forged DNS response to an application using libevent which could lead to reading data out of bounds on the heap, potentially disclosing a small amount of application memory. (CVE-2016-10195)

- A vulnerability was found in libevent with the parsing of IPv6 addresses. If an attacker could cause an application using libevent to parse a malformed address in IPv6 notation of more than 2GiB in length, a stack overflow would occur leading to a crash.

- A use-after-free vulnerability when using an incorrect URL during the reloading of a docshell. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 54, Firefox ESR < 52.2, and Thunderbird < 52.2. (CVE-2017-7749)

- A use-after-free vulnerability during specific user interactions with the input method editor (IME) in some languages due to how events are handled. This results in a potentially exploitable crash but would require specific user interaction to trigger. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 54, Firefox ESR < 52.2, and Thunderbird < 52.2. (CVE-2017-7752)

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 < 54, Firefox ESR < 52.2, and Thunderbird < 52.2. (CVE-2017-5470)

- An out of bounds read flaw related to graphite2::Silf::readGraphite has been reported in graphite2. An attacker could possibly exploit this flaw to disclose potentially sensitive memory or cause an application crash. (CVE-2017-7774)

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw related to lz4::decompress (src/Decompressor) has been reported in graphite2. An attacker could exploit this issue to cause a crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-7773)

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw related to lz4::decompress has been reported in graphite2. An attacker could exploit this issue to cause a crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7772)

- An out of bounds read flaw related to graphite2::Pass::readPass has been reported in graphite2. An attacker could possibly exploit this flaw to disclose potentially sensitive memory or cause an application crash. (CVE-2017-7771)

(CVE-2017-7777)

- An out of bounds read flaw related to graphite2::Silf::getClassGlyph has been reported in graphite2. An attacker could possibly exploit this flaw to disclose potentially sensitive memory or cause an application crash. (CVE-2017-7776)

- Characters from the Canadian Syllabics unicode block can be mixed with characters from other unicode blocks in the addressbar instead of being rendered as their raw punycode form, allowing for domain name spoofing attacks through character confusion. The current Unicode standard allows characters from Aspirational Use Scripts such as Canadian Syllabics to be mixed with Latin characters in the moderately restrictive IDN profile. We have changed Firefox behavior to match the upcoming Unicode version 10.0 which removes this category and treats them as Limited Use Scripts.. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 54, Firefox ESR < 52.2, and Thunderbird < 52.2. (CVE-2017-7764)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 52, Firefox ESR 45.8, Firefox ESR 52, and Thunderbird 52. 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 Thunderbird < 52.1, Firefox ESR < 45.9, Firefox ESR < 52.1, and Firefox < 53. (CVE-2017-5429)

- A vulnerability while parsing application/http-index- format format content where uninitialized values are used to create an array. This could allow the reading of uninitialized memory into the arrays affected. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.1, Firefox ESR < 45.9, Firefox ESR < 52.1, and Firefox < 53.
(CVE-2017-5445)

- A use-after-free vulnerability during XSLT processing due to a failure to propagate error conditions during matching while evaluating context, leading to objects being used when they no longer exist. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.1, Firefox ESR < 45.9, Firefox ESR < 52.1, and Firefox < 53. (CVE-2017-5440)

- An out-of-bounds write in the Graphite 2 library triggered with a maliciously crafted Graphite font. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This issue was fixed in the Graphite 2 library as well as Mozilla products. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.1, Firefox ESR < 45.9, Firefox ESR < 52.1, and Firefox < 53. (CVE-2017-5436)
