An attacker could potentially exploit this in combination with another vulnerability that allowed them to write data to the cache, to execute arbitrary code. A type confusion bug was discovered in JavaScript. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
