Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-08 23:10:17 EST
Google Chrome before 8.0.552.237 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.344 
do not properly perform a cast of an unspecified variable during 
handling of anchors, which allows remote attackers to cause a 
denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact 
via a crafted HTML document.
