CVE-2018-5148: Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2018-10 Use-after-free

Hi Folks, homeland security urge computer users stay alert of web browser (FireFox) vulnerability. The design flaw could let the attacker execute a denial-of-service condition.  I review the vulnerability details. It state the following. A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in the compositor during certain graphics operations when a raw pointer is used instead of a reference counted one. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. But I have different imagination of this flaw. In short, please refer below diagram for reference.

To be or not to be? But it is better to conduct the security update now. For more details, please refer below url for reference.
