Overview

Microsoft.ChakraCore.vc140 is the core part of the Chakra JavaScript engine that powers Microsoft Edge.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Remote Code Execution (RCE). There is a use-after-free (UAF) bug in Parse.cpp which may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the authenticated user.
