Subject description: Could be exploited to run arbitrary code

Description

Mozilla developers and community members Christian Holler, Jon Coppeard, Marcia Knous, David Baron, Mats Palmgren, Ronald Crane, Bob Clary, and Chris Peterson reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 52, Firefox ESR 45.8, and Firefox ESR 52. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

Well why not publish them all so as to make it easy for the world of script kiddies to exploit.
That was not a very clever post.

Doesn't Mozilla do that all the time, so any potential hacker is directed to exactly where the weakness is, making it a breeze to write a exploit. They then just need to set up traps for anyone who hasn't upgraded their browser ... again a trivial test.

Interesting. Maybe 52.1esr will stop the crashing in Slacko 6.3.2 (then again it didn't happen in FF45.8esr so probably not).
