Description Vincent Danen 2010-09-08 18:08:03 UTC
A memory corruption issue exists in WebKit's handling of form menus. Visiting a
maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination
or arbitrary code execution. This issue is fixed through improved handling of
form menus. Credit to Csaba Osztrogonac of University of Szeged for reporting
this issue.
