Description

Using the Address Sanitizer tool, Mozilla security researcher Christoph Diehl discovered two memory corruption issues involving the Graphite 2 library used in Mozilla products. Both of these issues can cause a potentially exploitable crash. These problems were fixed in the Graphite 2 library, which has been updated for Mozilla products.
