Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Apple WebKit, as used in Safari before 3.1.1, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted URL with a colon in the hostname portion.

Relevant part of Apple security advisory:

Description:  An issue exists in WebKit's handling of URLs containing
a colon character in the host name. Opening a maliciously crafted URL
may lead to a cross-site scripting attack. This update addresses the
issue through improved handling of URLs. Credit to Robert Swiecki of
the Google Security Team, and David Bloom for reporting this issue.

So far, I failed to find further details about this issue.  Searching WebKit
trac does not show anything obvious either.
