Description Vincent Danen 2010-02-16 19:41:20 EST
Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported that the HTML
parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space was available to
process remaining input. Under such circumstances, memory occupied by in-use
objects was freed and could later be filled with attacker-controlled text.
These conditions could result in the execution or arbitrary code if methods on
the freed objects were subsequently called.
