Mozilla has outfoxed three critical and six high severity flaws in its latest round of patches for its flagship browser.

It stomps out memory safety bugs, exploitable use-after-free crashes, and a buffer overflow.

Of the critical crashes, bad guys could potentially craft attacks targeting MP4 video playback through a buffer overflow in the libstagefright library (CVE-2015-0829).

Another potential exploitable crash that is unlikely to be a threat in email clients where scripting was disabled centres on a use-after-free flaw for specific web content with IndexedDB (CVE-2015-0831).

The third are a bunch of memory bugs (CVE-2015-0836) (CVE-2015-0835) Mozilla and its fans found in the engine behind the company's products including Firefox browser that dedicated attackers could probably exploit, given enough coffee.




We shall see.
