Description Josh Bressers 2010-10-12 14:18:29 UTC
Security researcher Alexander Miller reported that passing an excessively
long string to document.write could cause text rendering routines to end up
in an inconsistent state with sections of stack memory being overwritten
with the string data. An attacker could potentially use this flaw to crash
a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer.
