(CVE-2015-3135, CVE-2015-4432, CVE-2015-5118) - Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-3117, CVE-2015-3123, CVE-2015-3130, CVE-2015-3133, CVE-2015-3134, CVE-2015-4431) - Multiple NULL pointer dereference flaws exist. (CVE-2015-3126, CVE-2015-4429) - A security bypass vulnerability exists that results in an information disclosure. (CVE-2015-3114) - Multiple type confusion vulnerabilities exist that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-3119, CVE-2015-3120, CVE-2015-3121, CVE-2015-3122, CVE-2015-4433) - Multiple use-after-free errors exist that allow arbitrary code execution.
