These vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., they may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. For a successful exploit, a user running an affected release in their browser will need to visit a malicious web page that exploits this vulnerability. Successful exploits can impact the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of the user's system."
