CVE-2016-5198

Description
V8 in Google Chrome prior to 54.0.2840.90 for Linux, and 54.0.2840.85 for
Android, and 54.0.2840.87 for Windows and Mac included incorrect
optimisation assumptions, which allowed a remote attacker to perform
arbitrary read/write operations, leading to code execution, via a crafted
HTML page.
