Description
===========

Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web
page, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to perform Man-in-the-Middle
attacks, obtain sensitive information, spoof the address bar, conduct
clickjacking attacks, bypass security restrictions and protection
mechanisms, or have other unspecified impact.
