(<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1574">CVE-2014-1574</a>, <a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1575">CVE-2014-1575</a>) Atte Kettunen discovered a buffer overflow during CSS manipulation. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1576">CVE-2014-1576</a>) Holger Fuhrmannek discovered an out-of-bounds read with Web Audio.

If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1578">CVE-2014-1578</a>) Michal Zalewski discovered that memory may not be correctly initialized when rendering a malformed GIF in to a canvas in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to steal sensitive information. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1580">CVE-2014-1580</a>) A use-after-free was discovered during text layout in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1581">CVE-2014-1581</a>) Patrick McManus and David Keeler discovered 2 issues that could result in certificate pinning being bypassed in some circumstances. An attacker with a fraudulent certificate could potentially exploit this conduct a man in the middle attack. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1582">CVE-2014-1582</a>, <a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1584">CVE-2014-1584</a>) Eric Shepherd and Jan-Ivar Bruaroey discovered issues with video sharing via WebRTC in iframes, where video continues to be shared after being stopped and navigating to a new site doesn&#39;t turn off the camera. An attacker could potentially exploit this to access the camera without the user being aware. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1585">CVE-2014-1585</a>, <a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-1586">CVE-2014-1586</a>) Boris Zbarsky discovered that webapps could use the Alarm API to read the values of cross-origin references. If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafter webapp, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions.
