Description

Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 50.0.2661.94, mishandles assertions in the WTF::BitArray and WTF::double_conversion::Vector classes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted web site.
