These vulnerabilities, identified as "Use-after-free in Dawn and Swiftshader," could be exploited if a user visits a maliciously crafted webpage. According to CERT-In, successful exploitation of these flaws could permit attackers to execute arbitrary code and gain control over the compromised system.

To mitigate these risks, CERT-In strongly recommended that users promptly apply the security updates provided by Microsoft.
