Description Florian Schuhmacher 2018-06-13 13:27:48 UTC
An out of bounds write flaw was found in the V8 component of the Chromium browser.

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to out-of-bounds write in V8. A remote attacker can trick the victim into visiting a specially crafted website, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may result in system compromise.
