Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-09 04:17:55 UTC
Google Chrome before 8.0.552.224 and Chrome OS before 8.0.552.343 
do not properly perform cursor handling, which allows remote 
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified 
other impact via unknown vectors that lead to "stale pointers."
