Security researchers Jose Martinez and Romina Santillan reported a memory leak in the libstagefright library when array destruction occurs during MPEG4 video file processing.
In general this flaw cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled, but is potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
