DescriptionThe NaClSandbox::InitializeLayerTwoSandbox function in components/nacl/loader/sandbox_linux/ in Google Chrome before 42.0.2311.90 does not have RLIMIT_AS and RLIMIT_DATA limits for Native Client (aka NaCl) processes, which might make it easier for remote attackers to conduct row-hammer attacks or have unspecified other impact by leveraging the ability to run a crafted program in the NaCl sandbox.
