Type confusion in V8 in Google Chrome prior to 90.0.4430.85 allowed a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary code inside a sandbox via a

issue exist in the wild.

- CVE-2021-21225 (arbitrary code execution)

Out of bounds memory access in V8 in Google Chrome prior to

rendered process. In addition, an attacker can execute arbitrary code
and escape the sandbox through a crafted HTML page.
