Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-09-25 18:32:41 UTC
A security flaw was found in the way WebKit used to handle media elements
(audio and video tags). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted document, requesting loading of sub-resources (such as remote URLs),
which would be normally disallowed by the callback function(s).
