Other holes closed include eight “high-risk” bugs ranging from a use-after-free error in text line box handling and stale fonts in text handling, to a cross-origin problem, lifetime and threading issues in audio node handling, and use-after-free and memory corruption exploits in V8, the browser’s JavaScript engine.
