Description Vincent Danen 2010-05-26 17:52:46 UTC
An uninitialized memory access issue exists in WebKit's handling of selection changes on form input elements. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved handling of selections.

This issue does not affect webkitgtk (1.2.0 (r56916)) or qtwebkit (4.6.2 (r50154)) as it was fixed in an earlier svn revision (r46437).
