Description

Security researcher Aki Helin from OUSPG used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a crash during the decoding of WAV format audio files in some instances. This crash is not exploitable but could be used for a denial of service (DOS) attack by malicious parties.

In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts in those products.
